Never-Before-Seen Picasso Artworks Revealed

These examples are from a newly discovered trunk full of 271 early Picassos (1900-1932) that were supposedly given as gifts to an electrician, Pierre Le Guennec, who worked for the artist and his wife. The man brought them to the Picasso estate to be authenticated and now they are suing him. Darn it. Here's the LINK to more photos: Washington Post Blog
I would love to see everything in that trunk! I adore early works by Picasso (before his art got all weird and crazy). Maybe he really did give them away in his old age. Picasso did what he wanted to do. He played tricks on people including his heirs. Did you know that Arianna Huffington wrote a book about Picasso? It's a really good read. LINK
