The real tragedy is that people who have grown up with these works will now be deprived of them.

The UK's Bolton Council will press ahead with the sale of 36 works. Some don't like it (here and here).

These works will be offered at Bonhams over the next few months. The list includes:
  • Gaspard Dughet Classical Landscape
  • Richard Ansdell Buzzard and Ptarmigan
  • William Powell Frith A Dream of the Future
  • 18th Century French School The Finding of Oedipus
  • Arthur Ambrose McEvoy Madame Errasuriz
  • Walter Richard Sickert Pauline de Talleyrand-Perigord
  • Philip Wilson Steer The Falls at Aysgarth
  • John Everett Millais The Somnambulis
  • George Romney King Lear
  • Edward Burne-Jones Danae and the Brazen Tower
  • Charles Ginner English Landscape
