The Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMCA) curator has said that the museum plans to loan three other works of art to exhibitions at foreign museums.

Still Life with Japanese Print

"The Museum of London has applied for loan of Paul Gauguin's 'Still Life with Japanese Print'," Mahmud Shaluii told the Persian service of the Fars News Agency on Monday.

"We are currently investigating their application for the loan of the painting," he added.

He said that they also plan to lend two other works to exhibits in two countries, the names of which will be announced later.

In April 2009, the TMCA rejected a request by the National Gallery of Art in Washington for a loan of Gauguin's "Still Life with Japanese Print" for an exhibition.

"The request was rejected due to their untrustworthiness and lack necessary qualifications for safeguarding the artwork," Shaluii said.

Last week, he attended the opening ceremony of the Kunsthaus Zurich show, which has put on display a number of works by Pablo Picasso.

Picasso's "The Painter and His Model", which belong to the TMCA, has been loaned to the show running until January 30, 2011.

In August 2010, the TMCA also loaned Dutch artist Kees van Dongen's "Trinidad Fernandez" to Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam.
