Last Masterpiece

No, I haven't suddenly got religion for Christmas. ArtDaily (CLICK) reminded me that Domenichino’s The Adoration of the Shepherds is the last Masterpiece A Month to help celebrate this year's bicentenary of Dulwich Picture Gallery in London (title link). The Governors of Dulwich College flogged this oil painting in 1971 to raise funds, despite an outcry. It was bought by the National Gallery of Scotland, which lent it to Dulwich this month. You have until 8 January 2012 to view it.
