An ArtInfo article discussing the potential acquisition of Picasso’s ‘Buste de Femme’ painted in 1943 for an exhibition at the International Academy of Art in Palestine. It is valued at $7 million.
“The Palestinian Territories may soon be paid a visit by a $7 million painting by Pablo Picasso, the first work by the artist — and the most valuable work by any artist — ever to be displayed in the West Bank. According to the Associated Press, however, the logistics of safely transporting the 1943 Cubist “Buste de Femme” through Israeli checkpoints and into the conflict zone will be exceedingly difficult, and may ultimately prove impossible. The loan would also place the work in the midst of a violently unstable region, where actor and cultural activist Juliano Mer Khamis was murdered earlier this week.” (from the article below)
