The campaign launched jointly by the National Trust and the Art Fund to purchase the Nostell Brueghel is now in its final stages.
So far the fundraising has gone well, with generous support from both private donors and institutions.
But it is still not certain whether we will be able to get all the necessary funds together by the Christmas deadline. The Art Fund website is still open for donations.
Keeping the Brueghel at Nostell Priory, where it can be seen together with all the other great paintings from the Winn collection still in the house, would be a marvelous Christmas present for us all. So here’s hoping the final push will succeed.
