David Teniers the Younger, Kermesse scene

The board of the Alfred Beit Foundation has unanimously decided to postpone the sale in order to explore a proposal from private Irish donors for the possible purchase of artworks which are in the upcoming Christie’s sale. The board also decided if the current proposal or other proposals do not reach a satisfactory conclusion by October 2015 and Russborough is otherwise unable to raise the required funds, the sale of the artworks via auction will be resumed. The board has resolved to seek a further meeting with the Minister for the Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Ms Heather Humphreys and Mr Simon Harris, Minister of State at the Office of Public Works to establish the Government’s support for Russborough for the future.
