Louvre Appeal

It's that time of the year when all those Christmas appeals start descending on us. The Louvre Museum in Paris is no exception. It's appealing to the public to raise 1m euro thingies (£630,000) toward the purchase price of 4m euro thingies (£2.5m) for Lucas Cranach the Elder's The Three Graces (1531). He was German. So why does the Louvre want it? It can't be his incompetent female anatomy. The answer is it could be a nice little earner. The Louvre has until 31 January to raise the readies.
