Nude, Green Leaves and Bust
by Pablo Picasso

Sold at Christie's on May 6, 2010 for $106,000,000

When this historic painting was sold in New York in 2010, we were approached by Christie's with the request that a more appropriate frame be created for the painting to prepare it for their sale.

Christie's supplied us with the attached historical photograph showing the frame that was originally used on the painting in the 1932 Georges Petit exhibition, curated by Picasso himself. By the time the painting reached Christie's, this frame had been lost.

From our collection of over 3600 frames, a frame closely matching this photograph was found, and a handcrafted replica was created to fit the painting, returning it to the appearance that the artist had originally intended.
