Sir Peter Paul Rubens, PORTRAIT OF A BEARDED MAN

THANK YOU to the 5,000 and more people who have signed the IAR Appeal to Save the Beit Paintings and demonstrated to the world how much we appreciate the extraordinary bequest of Alfred and Clementine Beit to the Irish people.

Christie’s has formally withdrawn the Beit paintings from next month’s auction in London. But the ABF has cautioned that ‘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.’

Please continue to sign and share to show your support for an alternative solution to the financial difficulties facing Russborough.
