Please see attachment is this worth seeking authentication?

Answer
Hello Diane,

In my opinion, the signature of this work looks slightly off.  However, the only person with the authority to authenticate a potentially unique work by Picasso is Maya Picasso.  Please find her contact information below (she is only available by fax):

Maya Widmaier Picasso | DWP Editions
23, Place Vend˘me
75001 Paris
FRANCE
Fax +33 (0) 1 42 61 11 45


Perhaps I can recommend contacting her to know more.

Best,

Andrew Evans
