Answer
Dear J. Everest Thomas,

Unfortunately, I do not have the authority to authenticate a potentially unique work by Picasso.  In order to sell this work as a Picasso, you will need to have it authenticated by Maya Picasso.  Please find her contact information below:

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


She is only available by fax and mail. I hope that this information can be of some assistance.

Best of luck,

Andrew Evans
