Government buys 10 Cazabon paintings

The Government has acquired several original paintings done by late Trinidad and Tobago artist, Michel-Jean Cazabon for around TT$2 million dollars.

Communications Minister Maxie Cuffie says the painting were being auctioned at Christie's Auction House in London on October 29th this year but says the Government felt it was best to have the paintings acquired as part of the country's heritage.

He says the Government is making arrangements for them to be stored locally and adds that they will form part of an exhibition in 2016 where all the works will be unveiled.
