Government has acquired 12 original paintings done by the late T&T artist Michel Jean Cazabon at an auction in London.
Communications Minister Maxie Cuffie, speaking at yesterday's post-Cabinet press conference at the Office of the Prime Minister, St Clair, said arrangements were being made for the paintings to be returned to T&T and be on show at an exhibition next year.
He said the art work, bought at an auction in October at Christie's Auction House, was part of T&T's heritage.
