The press in Spain have reported on news that 41 paintings from the collection of the recently departed Hans Rudolf Gerstenmaier have been donated to the Museo de Bellas Artes in Valencia.

The majority of the gifted works are Flemish, including Rubens's 'The Cumberland Virgin' and other paintings by the likes of Jan Brueghel the Elder, Hendrick Goltzius, Martin de Vos and Gaspar Peeter Verbrugghen.

Two years ago an additional 11 works were gifted to the Prado in Madrid.

Update - @Boro_RR on Twitter has pointed out that the aforementioned Rubens is actually the same 'Studio of Rubens' painting that sold at Christie's in July 2010.
