The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles is planning to acquire a sixteenth century painting by the Italian Renaissance master, Parmigianino. According to the museum, Virgin With Child, St. John the Baptist, and Mary Magdalene, has been part of a private British collection for more than 400 years. Sotheby’s will handle the sale, but the Arts Council England could attempt to block the transaction as it requires exporting the masterpiece to another country.
