An original painting by Pablo Picasso valued at a cool €1 million ($1,113,735) could be yours for just a €100 raffle ticket.
The Paris-based non-profit Aider les Autres (translated from French as “Help the Others”) is hosting a raffle, “1 Picasso for 100 Euros,” in which members of the public can purchase a €100 ticket to potentially win a still-life by the Spanish master. Those buying a ticket have a 1-in-200,000 chance of winning the coveted work.
The 1921 oil-on-canvas painting, titled Nature Morte, depicts a newspaper alongside a glass of absinthe. The date and style are symbolic of a period in the artist’s career categorized as “Crystal” or “Synthetic” Cubism, defined by Tate Modern as a movement “about flattening out the image and sweeping away the last traces of allusion to three-dimensional space.”
The work has been donated by legendary collector David Nahmad. You will be able to read our interview with the collector shortly.
