The London art dealers Libson & Yarker have shared news that they sold a painting by Angelica Kauffman to the Cincinnati Art Museum last year. Abraham driving out Hagar and Ishmael (pictured) was painted in 1792 after Kauffman had returned to Italy from London. The painting was commissioned by Marchesa Polissena Turinetti di Priero and had remained in the family's hands until the 1960s.
