pablo picasso’s lady

Pablo Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust,” set a new sale record at Christie’s. See the full article here in The NY Times.

In 1951, the painting sold for $19,800; at the recent auction at Christie’s, it sold for $106.5 million. Will Picasso’s family see any of the profit? Or how about an art program funded by just one (or even a quarter of one) of the millions? A program that could nurturer a future Picasso...

A curious fact, here is Picasso’s full name: Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso.
