Spain's Ministry for Culture and Sport have announced that they have recently spent €237,100 on purchasing art for the nation. This includes a Goya drawing entitled En Voyage for the Prado Museum. Of greater interest perhaps is the €152,200 spent on 17 oils on copper by the Mexican artist José Joaquín Magón (active between 1742 and 1764) (pictured). These rare and interesting works, which depict scenes from the Life of Mary, will go to the Museo de América.
