Culture Minister steps in to prevent Titian study from export

Culture Minister Matt Hancock has placed a temporary export bar on a rare drawing by Titian to provide an opportunity to keep it in the country. The drawing, Study of a Kneeling Man, is at risk of being exported from the UK unless a buyer can be found to match the asking price of £4.4 million (plus VAT of £81,400). It is one of only nine drawings by Titian in the UK. Experts believe it is a preparatory drawing for the first version of Pentecost, which was a painting commissioned for the church of Santo Spirito in Isola in 1529.
