A 1921 work, titled Nature Morte, featuring an obscured newspaper, has been selected for this task. The painting, valued at £1 million, will be the prize for the charity draw, which anyone can enter for the cost of a ticket. Proceeds will be invested in securing clean water.

“My grandfather was very concerned about helping people,” said his grandson, the child of the painter’s daughter Maya. “He was very poor when he left Spain to come to Paris. He was obliged to burn some paintings just to put something in the fireplace.



The draw for the competition will take place at Christie's in Paris on January 6. Entrants for the draw can apply online.
