Italian woman wins $1.1 million Picasso in charity draw

PARIS: An Italian woman has won a Picasso painting worth more than $1 million in a charity raffle to raise money for village water projects in Africa.
The winner of Wednesday’s draw at Christie’s auction house in Paris was named as Claudia Borgogno, who was gifted the winning ticket. Her prize is Picasso’s 1921 oil painting “Nature Morte” (Still Life), which is signed and dated by the artist. The Spanish master’s geometric composition representing a piece of newspaper and a glass of absinthe had been valued at one million euros ($1.1 million). (AFP)
