Ar­mada paint­ing may leave the UK

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

A rare paint­ing de­pict­ing the de­feat of the Span­ish Ar­mada may leave the UK un­less a buyer can be found to match its £210,000 ask­ing price.

The minia­ture shows Queen El­iz­a­beth I watch­ing the naval battle. Arts, Her­itage and Tourism Min­is­ter Michael El­lis has placed a tem­po­rary ex­port bar on The Span­ish Ar­mada In The Year 1588, by an un­known artist. He said: “Al­though the Span­ish Ar­mada is one of the defin­ing con­flicts in Eng­land’s naval his­tory, con­tem­po­rary de­pic­tions of it are ex­cep­tion­ally rare.”
