The Guardian: Uffizi Galleries sue Jean Paul Gaultier over use of Botticelli images

The Guardian: Uffizi Galleries sue Jean Paul Gaultier over use of Botticelli images. “The matter came to light earlier this year after the Uffizi in Florence was notified of the garments being advertised by Jean Paul Gaultier on its website and social media. The painting by Sandro Botticelli is the centrepiece of the Botticelli Rooms at the world-famous galleries and, according to Italian law, any use of the country’s publicly owned art to sell merchandise requires permission and payment of a fee.”
