Domenichino Saved

This Baroque masterpiece Domenichino's Saint John the Evangelist (1620s) has gone on display at the National Gallery in London. Bought by a foreign buyer in December 2009, its export was blocked to allow time to raise £9.2m to keep it in the UK. An anonymous buyer came up with the readies and will allow the painting to be regularly displayed here. Well worth a gander.
