Picasso Painting to Stay in Britain for Now

Child with a Dove Reposted from WikiPaintingsThe BBC reports that a painting by Pablo Picasso destined for the national exit door will stay in Britain, at least for now. The culture minister has placed a temporary exit bar on Picasso’s Child With A Dove, which has been on public display there since the 1970s. Owned by the Aberconway family in Wales, the work was recently sold by Christie’s. The move gives cultural institutions time to attempt to raise enough money, perhaps in the neighborhood of $79 million, to keep it there.
