The Greek Police have recovered the painting Woman’s head from the painter from Malaga Pablo Picasso, which was stolen nine years ago from the Athens National Team.

Along with the work of Picasso another by the Dutch artist has also been found Piet Mondrian. Both were hidden in a warehouse about 50 kilometers from Athens and the alleged perpetrator of the robbery is a 49-year-old man.

The Ministry of Culture of Athens has confirmed the finding and it is expected that more data will be known this Tuesday.

This February, the Police resumed investigations into the robbery after reporting that it was considered that the work had not left the Hellenic country, not being on the black market.

The cubist painting was gifted by Picasso himself in recognition of the resistance of the Greek country during World War II. The canvas, painted in 1939, measures 56 by 40 centimeters and It is the only work of the Spanish artist that had his ‘residence’ in the Greek National Gallery.
