Picasso’s Naked Woman recovered

Iraqi security forces today showed off a Picasso they seized from a former soldier in Saddam’s military who had looted the painting in 1990 during the occupation of Kuwait.

The Naked Woman went missing from the al-Ahmedi Hall of the Kuwait Museum in the aftermath of the Iraqi invasion that triggered the first Gulf war.
