UK Bans Export of Bacon's Study After Velasquez

The export of a painting by Francis Bacon has been temporarily banned by the British government in an attempt to find a buyer in the UK, the BBC reports. Bacon's Study After Velasquez, 1950, will be subject to the export ban until July 27, with the possibility of an extension until November 27. The move has been made to give British buyers time to meet the unnamed seller's asking price of £9.5 million ($17 million).
