JMW Turner Masterpiece: Temporary Export Bar Provides Time To Find UK Buyer

Michael Ellis the Arts Minister has placed a temporary export bar on Ehrenbreitstein, a painting by JMW Turner, to provide an opportunity to keep it in the country. The painting is at risk of being exported from the UK unless a buyer can be found to match the asking price of £18,533,750 (plus VAT of £306,750).
