Cache of Previously Unknown 271 Works of Picasso Discovered

Pierre Le Guennec, a retired electrician, revealed that he has 271 works of the late artist Pablo Picasso that were previously unknown to art historians. Le Guennec claims that Picasso's widow, Jacqueline Picasso, gave them to him during the 13 years that he worked for her after her husband died:

Le Guennec contacted the Picasso estate by mail in January to request certification of authenticity for the works -- a collection of cubist collages, drawings, lithographs, notebooks and a watercolor.

Along with the letter, Le Guennec included 26 photographs of previously unpublished Picasso pieces.

But he found himself slapped with a lawsuit filed by the artist's son, Claude Picasso, and five other heirs who say the works are stolen.
