Update on Picasso trove, part 3: The verdict

Pierre Le Guennec and wife Danielle in court (photo: AFP)The Red Dot has been following this story (the initial story, the thickening plot, and the law suit charges) about the electrician who claims Pablo Picasso gave him 271 works of art (lithographs, portraits, a watercolor and sketches created 1900-1932) as payment for work he did for the artist before he died in 1973. Picasso’s family accused Pierre Le Guennec of stealing the works and took him and his wife to court. The trial ended today and Le Guennec and his wife were found guilty and ordered to return the “stolen” works to the estate. They also received a suspended sentence.
