The export ban on one of the most important Impressionist works in the UK, Manet's Portrait of Mademoiselle Claus, which has been sold to a foreign bidder for £28.35 m., expires and the Ashmolean Museum it belongs to has to make final calculations whether the painting has to go or can stay in the country.
The Culture Minister Ed Vaizey who imposed the ban in an attempt to stop the sale also offered to give it to the museum without tax for £7.83m and thus keep it available to the public.
In order to raise the money, the locals organised a trail with 10 replica images around the city.
The precious 111x70 cm oil canvas has been exhibited only once since it was created in 1868.
