About 270 precious works of the legendary artist Pablo Picasso were found, when a retired electrician came forward to authenticate the artist’s works in Paris. However Picasso’s son, Claude Picasso along with five other heirs, roped the electrician, by filing a suit against him, and also claiming that the paintings were stolen.
Some drawings, lithographs, collection of cubist collages, notebooks and a water color, were found and revealed in the month of January by Pierre Le Guennec, when he had approached the Picasso estate for its authentication. Pierre had according to sources, mailed the request of authentication to the Picasso estate.
Pierre who lived in South France, had sent some of the pictures of the works, before he come to Paris. Picasso’s family had filed the suit on 23rd September. According to the suit, Pierre was accused of hiding the stolen works.
According to sources, the family filed the suit for the reason that Pierre had not given enough information about the source, from where he found the works.
