Cheap “fake” Picasso could be authentic

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An extraordinary Pablo Picasso auction is about to take place. When Philip Stapleton, an antiques collector from Crawley, West Sussex, bought a painting that was supposedly a Picasso for $290 (£230) at a car boot sale, he knew it didn’t seem likely that it was genuine. But the truth behind the painting ended up taking Stapleton on an art world roller-coaster ride–with the outcome is still not known.

When he spotted the “Picasso” painting at the car boot sale (a market where people sell their goods from the trunks of their cars), he most liked the look of the Art Deco 1930s frame. But he still felt a bit embarrassed by the purchase and it sat on his desk for six months.
