The Etihad Airways lounge is one of a select few places exhibiting such notable works of art for the enjoyment of its First and Business Class guests, further strengthening the airline’s position as a global cultural ambassador.

The Picasso lithographs were created from original paintings inherited by Marina Picasso from her grandfather’s estate and include a selection of the artist’s most treasured works, recreated by Master Chromist, Marcel Salinas, who worked closely with Picasso during his lifetime.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Having work by the most celebrated Cubist artist of all time displayed in our Paris lounge will help define the Etihad Airways journey for our guests departing this great city.
