Photo of the Day

picasso ramallah
Art curators hang a Picasso painting titled "Buste de Femme" on the wall in a gallery, in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Monday, June 20 2011. A Pablo Picasso painting worth 7 million dollars has finally completed its journey to an arts academy in the West Bank city of Ramallah. The small art school put in the loan request in early 2010. Normally, such inter-museum exchanges are routine and take about six months to coordinate but because of complications such as finding reliable transport and clearing Israeli checkpoints, the process has taken over a year.

With regards to those checkpoints the AP decided to mention, perhaps they need to be reminded the last time something was hung in Ramallah, it was no Picasso.

Incidentally, Buste de Femme is French for “female bust.” When I first saw that painting, I thought it was of a veiled Muslim woman holding a midget.
