A stolen Picasso painting, originally from Kuwait, was found in a raid of a private home by soldiers in Iraq. The Naked Woman was stolen in the 1990’s during Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait. The person in possession of the stolen art was planning on selling the painting.
Khalid said the man was trying to sell the painting for $450,000, but some Iraqi experts who saw the painting said it was worth $10 million.The painting, which was signed by Pablo Picasso and bore inscriptions from “The Museum of Kuwait” was being held as evidence while the suspected was interrogated, Khalid said. It appeared to have been folded several times in a picture of the painting that was released.
