Turner For Sale

Why not put off buying that Lamborghini and lash out on this Turner instead? Modern Rome - Campo Vaccino (1839) will cost you an estimated £18m when it comes up for auction at Sotheby's evening sale of Old Master and early British paintings in London on 7 July. The Turner will appreciate; the Lamborghini won't, and it burns fossil fuel. Yuk! Can't afford either of them? Never mind. Pop along to Sotheby's nearer the auction date and gaze upon this masterpiece, which hasn't been seen in public since the 5th Earl of Rosebery and his wife Hannah Rothschild bought it in 1878.
