Quoted in the article ‘Picasso remains at home’ from the newspaper El Mundo

The Director of this Office, Antonio Pedro Rodriguez Bernal, was recently interviewed by the newspaper El Mundo, National Edition, on the occasion of the seizure of the painting ‘Woman Head’ by Picasso, that was located in the French island of Corsica. This painting belonged, indirectly, to the Spanish wealthy banker, Jaimen Botín.

Yestarday (05-08-2015) was publicized the article “Picasso se queda en casa” (Picasso remains at home), which reflects an interesting perspective of the Art Market in Spain and the difficulty of recovering artworks that leave our country.

“Los plazos de reclamación cuando un cuadro se vende fuera del país sin consentimiento son muy cortos y en la mayoría de las ocasiones se acaba perdiendo” explica Antonio P. Rodriguez Bernal abogado y especialista en el derecho aplicable al Mercado del Arte, Patrimonio Histórico y Antigüedades. “Muchas veces aunque esa venta sea ilícita la compra la realiza un tercero de buena fe y se acaba perdiendo. En este caso tratándose de un cuadro tan conocido la buena fe es siempre muy discutible”, añade Rodríguez.
