Head of a Young Woman
Head of a Young Woman is a painting by Pablo Picasso. It belonged to Jaime Botín, a billionaire Spanish banker. On September 12, 2017, the judge Enrique Presa sent Botín to jail, fined him €133 million and confiscated the painting. Apparently, Botín had tried to smuggle it into Corsica, France to later sell it in Geneva, Switzerland, thereby violating the non-exportability status that the Spanish Government had granted the painting. If Botín is eventually considered guilty, the picture would become the property of the Kingdom of Spain.
