Rare Portrait of Playwright Saved

In November last year, we mentioned on this blog that the National Portrait Gallery was launching a public appeal for the purchase of a portrait of Elizabethan playwright John Fletcher. The appeal to raise £218,000 has been successful and the Gallery will now be able to add the painting to its collections.
