Imelda Marcos' Picasso

Image of Imelda Marcos' Picasso

Picture: Guardian

There's been much excitement in the press about a 'lost' Picasso supposedly seen in photographs of Imelda Marcos' home. 'Reclining Nude' was spotted when her son, Bongbong, went to celebrate his win in the Philippines presidential election (see above). However, the picture isn't certainly the same as that seen in photographs of Marcos' home from 2007 (see below). At least, the frame is different. It's all a bit unclear, and I can't really muster much more enthusiasm for the tale. If you can, more here.
