Hundreds of unknown Picasso works discovered in Paris | Art and design | The Guardian
On 9 September this year an elderly man calling himself Pierre Le Guennec travelled from his home on the Cote d’Azur to Paris and made his way to the offices of the Picasso Administration, which manages the artist’s legacy, in rue Volney in the second arrondissement.
He was carrying an unremarkable suitcase and was accompanied by his wife who, like him, was in her 70s.
Shown into the office of Claude Picasso, 63, the late painter’s son, who represents the artist’s heirs and estate, he opened the case he was carrying and produced 175 different works he claimed were by Picasso.
Fascinating story and a yet to be solved mystery. If this does not get turned into a major motion picture someday I’d be highly surprised.
