Picasso painting goes on display in Ramallah


A Palestinian art academy has put a $7 million Picasso painting on display.

The painting, Pablo Picasso’s “Buste de femme,” painted in 1943, is on loan from the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, Netherlands. It went on display in Ramallah Monday as part of the “Picasso in Palestine” exhibit.

It is said to be the most prestigious work ever exhibited in the West Bank, and is the Dutch museum’s most valuable work.

The loan took two years to arrange, though these transactions typically take about six months, according to reports.

The painting was flown from Amsterdam to Tel Aviv and then escorted to Ramallah by an Israeli security company, the Associated Press reported.
