A double-sided drawing by Andrea Mantegna sold at auction on 8 November 2013 for €509,650 ($680,000). Its fate, however, will depend on whether it is subject to Italian export restrictions for historic objects and artworks. The drawing shows Mantegna experimenting with different compositional solutions for a Pietà and has been linked to his famous Dead Christ of 1480.
