The Burlington Magazine's January editorial contains a very good summary of the conundrum facing the home of the Society of Antiquaries in Burlington House. It presents the history of the society's rental agreement with the government and shows that the current crisis seems to have been put in motion in 2004-05 and made worse by a change of policy in 2014. The editorial asks whether the government department in charge will be "capable of seeing 'value for taxpayers' in more than monetary terms."

The January edition focuses on Italian Art, and features articles on the Ludovisi Tondo, Raphael's Villa Madama, and new documents relating to Caravaggio's exile amongst others.
