The Museum of Fine Arts and Archeology of Besançon have hung their latest acquisition, Simon Vouet's Angels Bearing the Column of Passion. The work was purchased at Sotheby's Paris in November 2021 for €252,000 (inc. commission). Most importantly, the acquisition allows the work to be hung next to another canvas of angels to which it was originally joined.
