Update on Picasso trove: The Plot Thickens

According to ARTINFO, Picasso wasn’t quite as ungenerous as many have stated.  They cite several examples of his repayment of services or friendship with works of art, e.g. to his chauffeur and his barber.  Nevertheless, the French government has seized the trove of 271 works that electrician M. le Guennec had in his possession.  His account of how he came to have them has been revised a few times.  One version says that Picasso’s wife Jacqueline was actually the giftor, but family members and experts have denied the possibility of this.

Stay tuned for further developments.
