PICASSO continues to cause controversy from beyond the grave after forcing Edinburgh Airport into an embarrassing U-turn.
Red-faced officials had been displaying the Malaga-born artist’s painting Nude Woman in a Red Armchair as part of an advertising campaign for an exhibition, but were forced to cover it up following a string of complaints from passengers.
The image – showing Picasso’s mistress Marie-Therese Walter reclining naked on a chair – was later reinstated.
“On reflection we are more than happy to display the image in the terminal and we would like to apologise, particularly to the exhibition organisers, for the confusion,” said an airport spokesman.
Meanwhile, Malaga’s Picasso Museum has announced details of its autumn programme of events, which will include exhibitions, poetry readings and family theatre.
