Pablo Picasso’s former electrician Pierre Le Guennec, who installed security systems in the artist’s homes, is at the center of a battle over 271 works of art he claims to have been given by the artist as payment for work. He brought several pieces to Picasso’s estate to have them appraised and Picasso’s son, the estate’s administrator, has accused Le Guennec of stealing them. The value of the entire collection is estimated at roughly $80 million and ownership will be settled in court.
