Artnet news reports that the Polich government is planning to buy the Czartoryski collection, which includes Leonardo's Lady with an Ermine (above). A figure of $2 billion has been mentioned. Wikipedia tells me that the collection also contains two Rembrandts, among other things. We must wonder though what the Leonardo is worth - $500m? Or is it really 'priceless'?

Update - apparently it's insured for €350m. Cheap?
