Picasso's granddaughter to sell $290million collection of her grandfather's works

With pieces dating back to 1911 expected to be sold


The granddaughter of legendary Spanish artist Pablo Picasso is selling a selection of his artwork, as well as his famous French villa, for an expected $290million

Marina Picasso, who famously published a book accusing her famous grandfather of destroying her childhood, has put at least seven pieces of his rare art up for sale. The special offering includes a 1921 painting called Maternite for $50m, his 1911 Femme a la Mandoline for $60m, and a 1923 portrait of his first wife, Portrait de femme (Olga)for $60m.

The French villa in Cannes called 'La Californie', was Picasso and his second wife's Jacqueline Roque – who killed herself aged 59 following the artist's death – will also be up for sale when Marina meets with buyers in Geneva. The villa has since become a museum and gallery open to the public.
