Van Dyck Update

The Art Fund and the National Portrait Gallery have announced a modicum of movement in their attempt to save Sir Anthony Van Dyck's magnificent last Self-portrait for the nation. Following discussions between the owner of the painting, Alfred Bader, the art dealer Philip Mould and the collector James Stunt, the NPG now has the opportunity to buy the work for £10 million, instead of the £12.5 million originally sought. However, £10m is still a far cry from the £3.6 million raised so far (CLICK).
