What Am I Bid?

At this level of the market - or rather metamarket - and with paintings this great - the figures get blurry and meaningless. Suppose the Mona Lisa was on loan and had to be sold - any guesses? Still, with the Titians, they're probably right that the offer price is a good deal, and at least these paintings are worth securing for the nation, unlike the 'Raphael' Madonna of the Pinks.


  1. Why not keep the paintings and put their owner, the Duke of Sutherland, up for auction instead? Aristocrats are easy to produce in the event supply runs short but Titians, well, that would be very hard.

  2. I find it hard to go along with a £100m....sorry...
