John Donne Portrait Will Stay In the Public Domain

A while back I blogged about the campaign to keep the best-known portrait of John Donne in the public domain. I'm happy to report that the campaign has been successful and that the portrait will not be put up for auction. Apparently this was the most successful appeal the National Portrait Gallery has ever undertaken. Individual donations to the campaign ranged from £2 to £100,000.
