Old Master found in barn
A long lost masterpiece by Murillo has been discovered in a stable in Tring. The painting, entitled “The Selfie Adoration of The Magi” is believed to represent the vanity of man in the presence of a ‘higher’, more altruistic being, Murillo basing the characters on politicians of his time.
On ‘Antiques Roadshow’ Fiona Bruce said the find will be auctioned at Bonhams in the new year, but that it was anticipated to make only a fraction of the other lots in the sale; a selection of used sanitary towels by Tracey Emin and a bejewelled ebony dildo from Damian Hirst.Click to send this story to a friend
