The Art Newspaper has published news that the US Embassy in Moscow has donated $100,000 towards the conservation of a series of sixteenth century frescos kept in the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg. The gesture is being hailed as a major step forward in diplomatic relations between the countries. The three frescos, given to the School of Raphael, used to adorn the walls of a small villa in Rome before being acquired by the museum in 1861.

The work will be in anticipation of a exhibition at the Hermitage entitled After Raphael. 1520 - 2020 (due to open in December 2020).
