Then, police arrested a Greek man after the painting was discovered in the outskirts of the city.

Interestingly, Monday’s report appeared a few months after the Greek police said they believe the artwork was still in the country.

Picasso’s painting, showing the head of the woman, was donated to the Gallery by the artist in 1949. It is expected, the restoration of the art will be discussed during a press conference that will take place on Tuesday.
