Dutch museum lends Picasso to Ramallah
London: World renowned Spanish artist Pablo Picasso’s ‘Buste de Femme’ (1934) canvas is all set to become a part of Ramallah international art academy.
‘Buste de Femme’ will go on loan from Eindhoven`s Van Abbe Museum, which will be displayed in April.
A film is due to be made of the painting`s journey, including the Israeli border and various other checkpoints.
A special, temperature-controlled room is being prepared to house the masterpiece.
Apparently, it will be the first time when Picasso’s masterpiece goes on display in the Palestinian territories.
The ‘Picasso In Palestine’ exhibition is a joint project between the Van Abbe Museum and the Ramallah academy.
Other prominent works in the Eindhoven museum`s collection include pieces by Mondrian, Kandinsky and paintings by Dutch artists such as Carel Willink and Isaac Israels.
