For Just $135, You Could Own a Real Picasso Painting


The International Association to Save Tyre is giving art enthusiasts a chance to land an original Picasso for a mere $135.

The preservation organization is raffling off “Man with Opera Hat,” a 12-inch by 9 inch cubist drawing from 1914 bearing the painter’s signature. Proceeds will benefit the ancient Lebanese city of Tyre, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, to help preserve its ruins and artifacts and increase employment in the former port town.
