Maastricht Netherlands

No show in Maastricht

Carlo Maratta’s The Crucifixion of St Andrew pulled from an exhibition at Tefaf

The Earl of Wemyss and March continues to sell off family paintings, with Carlo Maratta’s The Crucifixion of St Andrew, around 1655 (above), expected to come on to the market for around £1m.

London dealer Simon Dickinson was reported as intending to show the Maratta at Tefaf, according to The Scotsman. On 11 March, the day of the report, it was withdrawn from the planned Maastricht presentation, partly because the family was concerned over publicity. The Earl added that “should that decision be reversed, the family would…give preference to its acquisition by a suitably eminent public institution in Scotland”.

The National Galleries of Scotland said they have had “informal discussions” over the

Maratta. n M.B.
