Pablo Picasso 'Weeping Woman' - Reproduction print on paper
Fine Quality Decorative Print of iconic work of art by Pablo Picasso from the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria entitled Weeping Woman.
This work of art is attained notoriety when it was stolen from the National Gallery of Victoria in 1986. The stolen work had been purchased by the National Gallery of Victoria for A$1.6 million in 1985—at the time the highest price paid by an Australian art gallery for an artwork. A group calling itself "Australian Cultural Terrorists" claimed responsibility, making a number of demands (and insults) in letters to the then Victorian Minister for the Arts, Race Mathews. The demands included increases to funding for the arts; threats were made that the painting would be destroyed. After an anonymous tip-off to police, the painting was found undamaged in a locker at Spencer Street Station on 19 August 1986. The theft still remains unsolved.
