|POUSSIN TO ISRAEL MUSEUM|
The Israel Museum in Jerusalem has acquired the "lost" masterpiece by Nicholas Poussin, The Destruction and Sack of the Temple of Jerusalem (1626). The painting is a gift to the museum by Yad Hanadiv, the Rothschild Foundation in Israel, in memory of the late 20th-century philosopher and Zionist Isaiah Berlin. The painting was originally commissioned by Cardinal Francesco Barberini and passed through the collection of Cardinal Richelieu before its whereabouts became unknown. In 1995 it was sold at Sotheby's -- misattributed to Piero Testa -- from the estate of Ernest Onians, an eccentric post-war collector and swill merchant who had kept it untouched in a barn. It was purchased by Hazlitt, Gooden & Fox, who restored the work and identified it as a Poussin.
