Germany’s culture minister Monika Grütters has proposed a plan for the creation of a multi-million-euro national fund that would allow the country to acquire culturally significant artworks that run the risk of being sold abroad. The UK has a similar scheme in place, which has helped the country retain culturally significant works by Raphael, JMW Turner, Rembrandt, and Titian.
