GENIUS’ WORK: The Madoura Collection, sold during a Christie’s auction in London, is an example of Picasso’s ceramic works.
A COLLECTION of 130 porcelain works by Pablo Picasso will be exhibited in Mijas Pueblo, according to national media.
The works of art will be housed in the new Museum of Contemporary Art, which the town hall expects to be opened in six months.
Although Mijas Mayor Angel Nozal officially stated that the collection “from an exceptional Malaga-born painter” is still pending an agreement with its private owners, national and local media have revealed they are Picassos.
If so, the future museum would house the second largest porcelain collection by the artist in the world.
The permanent collection will also include several works by Salvador Dali and Georges Braque.
Mijas town hall confirmed that the museum will be opened in the 445 square metre two storey building popularly known as La Baraka in Calle Malaga.
Refurbishment work costing €100,000 has already started.
