News from Spain that the Prado Museum in Madrid have acquired an Agony in the Garden by Paolo da San Leocadio. Born in Italy in 1447, this master is most famous for his work during his stay in Valencia, which included producing frescos and works of art for the city's cathedral. Press reports have stated that the work was purchased for 600,000 from the Bernat Gallery, with the American Friends of the Prado Museum paying for half of the costs.
