Purchases (I)

In this post and the next two, we will comment on some of the latest medieval art sales:

The Museo del Prado, has bought this “Calvary with Saints and Donors”.

 

 

The panel, of very high quality, has had different attributions and pending further studies, the Prado attributes it to the circle of Hugo van der Goes (one of the great masters of Flemish painting), previously it had been attributed to Just de Gant.

The price of the work was 1,600,000 euros, and although it may seem very high, if the painting could have been sold outside of Spain (it could not be exported, it was declared a good of cultural interest), it would have been multiplied by at least three.
