A Paris auctioneer has put off a scheduled sale of a trove of Picasso drawings after a separate cache of previously unknown works by the artist turned up in an electrician's garage.
A Paris auctioneer called off the scheduled sale Thursday of a trove of drawings Picasso gave his longtime chauffeur, after a separate cache of previously unknown Picassos turned up in an electrician's garage _ a revelation that stunned the art world.
"271 previously unknown artworks by Pablo Picasso came to light, ironically, thanks to a French electrician. Now, the artist's obscure offspring are crawling out of the immense shadow of their father to claim the works were purloined."
Pablo Picasso almost never stopped creating, leaving thousands of drawings, paintings and sculptures that lure crowds to museums and mansions worldwide. Now, a retired electrician says that 271 of the master's creations have been sitting for decades in his garage.
