The Tate has until 6 September to complete its fundraising to buy the £3.2 million Reynolds painting of The Archers. Its campaign received a major boost on 20 July, when the National Heritage Memorial Fund offered a grant of £1.6 million. Tate Members have pledged £500,000 and the National Art Collections Fund £400,000. This leaves £700,000 to raise before the export licence deferral expires, with a third deferral extending the period to 6 September (The Art Newspaper, No. 156, p.23; No. 158, p.30). Meanwhile, the painting is on loan to Tate Britain’s Reynolds exhibition, which runs until 18 September.
