The art work survived the 22nd July 2011 bombing unscathed, but other government buildings bearing the artist's murals were severely damaged. The Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage fears that Picasso's first monumental concrete murals, which were made between the late 1950s and the early 1970s for two government buildings in Oslo, may be destroyed. The buildings were severely damaged during the deadly terrorist attack in the Norwegian capital in July 2011. The government is now considering whether to demolish the Modernist buildings that form the regjeringskvartal or government quarter.
