Le Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rennes are making an appeal for corporate sponsorship to acquire the above bronze of Louis XIV. The work is a reduced model of a statue by Antoine Coysevox (1640-1720) which sat outside the Parliament building in Rennes before the Revolution. The museum began the appeal last autumn to raise the €2,370,000 required to purchase the work from a private collection in Britain (which one, I wonder?). Sponsors are offered a 90% tax rebate on the work by the French State, so it seems.
