The £35 Million Painting! We've got it...

May 18, 2017


Pablo Picasso's portrait of Dora Maar has been sold at a Christie's auction in New York for £35 million ($45mil). 

The painting was seized by the Nazis during World War Two. However, French Resistance fighters intercepted it as the Germans were making their way from Paris to Moravia.

 

So, of course its hit the press this week therefore leaves us no option than to recreate one exactly the same and showcase it at our exhibition this June (2017).

Alongside this painting, we recently sold our copy of Picasso's 'Women of Algiers' to one of our collectors in the UK. David's copy unfortunately didn't sell for $140 million like the original!
