The New York Post is reporting that Marina Picasso, Granddaughter of the artist by his first wife, Olga Khokholova, has made a massive sale of work totaling as much as $290m:
According to sources, Marina — the daughter of the artist’s son, Paulo Picasso — is selling at least seven of his works, including a 1923 portrait of Pablo’s first wife Olga, titled “Portrait de femme (Olga)” for about $60 million, a 1921 work titled “Maternité” for about $54 million, plus 1911’s “Femme a la Mandoline (Mademoiselle Leonie assie)” for around $60 million.
The works date from 1905 through 1965 and are being sold directly by Marina, who will meet clients personally in Geneva. Marina has written that Picasso refused to financially aid her family when she was a child.
