If you wish to try your luck and do your bit for the society at the very same time, here’s your chance to take part in a charity raffle being hosted by the French charity organization Aider les Autres in partnership with the Picasso Estate. Partakers stand a chance to win a Picasso still life painting worth $ 1 million – all for a contributing fee of $111! Yes, that’s right!
Dubbed “1 Picasso for 100 Euros,” the international raffle will offer the artist’s renowned work- “Nature Morte”, currently on view at the Picasso Museum in Paris. The painting represents an oil-on-canvas depiction of a newspaper alongside a glass of absinthe and is reflective of the “Crystal” or “Synthetic” Cubism movement which works by “flattening out the image and sweeping away the last traces of allusion to three-dimensional space.”
The Tickets to the raffle cost $111(€100) with the players standing a 1-in-200,000 chance of winning the coveted piece. After recovering the acquisition costs, the raised funds will go towards CARE International for the rehabilitation of schools and supplies of clean water in countries such as Cameroun, Madagascar, and Morocco. The charity draw will take place on January 6 on 1picasso100euros.com. Fancy trying your luck for Picasso?
