Italian woman becomes lucky winner of €1m Picasso in a raffle

May 22, 2020 11:56 IST

Italian woman Claudia Borgogno was announced the lucky winner of a Pablo Picasso painting that was on offer as a part of a charity raffle. Borgogno's son bought the ticket for her as a Christmas present in December. Her ticket was picked out in an electronic draw held at Christie's in Paris. The 1921 painting, Nature Morte or Still Life is valued at 1 million euros by the organisers. Proceeds of over 50,000 tickets, sold at 100 euros each, will go towards providing water for villagers in Cameroon and Madagascar.
