Picasso Trial

Here's a cosy picture: Pierre Le Guennec and his wife Danielle holding hands in court in Grasse, France. The former handyman and electrician to Picasso claims a box containing 271 unsigned lithographs, portraits and sketches was given to him by Picasso and his second wife Jacqueline in the 1970s. Le Guennec kept the box in his garage for nearly 40 years; then in 2010 he took the contents to Paris for authentication by the Picasso Administration. Bad move! He and his wife are accused of receiving stolen goods (CLICK).
