National Gallery London appeals for £2m in public funds to save Gentileschi work for nation

Published on , by La Gazette Drouot

The museum will buy Orazio Gentileschi’s The Finding of Moses (1630-33), painted for Charles I on the occasion of his son’s birth, to keep it on display in Trafalgar Square due to its importance to national heritage. Having raised 90% of the £19.5m price, a public appeal is hoped to obtain the remainder by Christmas.
