The National Gallery in London has acquired a painting by Camille Pissarro as part of the acceptance in lieu scheme.

Dated 1887, the bucolic Late afternoon in our meadow was owned by Bronwen Astor (d. 2017) who inherited it from her husband William Waldorf 3rd Viscount Astor. 'Bill' Astor was most famously known for being tangled up in the Profumo affair of the 1960s. The painting settles £1.1m of tax.
