On September 2, the official ceremony will take place at the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum, chaired by the Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism. ‘Portrait of a horseman’, attributed to Frans Pourbus El Joven (1569-1622), and the ‘Portrait of la Reina María Cristina de Borbón’, which is attributed to Vicente López Portaña (1772-1850).

The return of these two works 85 years later, sets a historical precedent in the restitution of works seized in the Civil War.
