Question
My mother in law gave us a painting of picasso's tragedy. We are trying to see if it's worth anything. Or can you direct us in the right direction?

Answer
Hello Robyn,

If you are referring to the painting on the below link, I do not believe that another unique original version of this work exists:

http://www.nga.gov/feature/picasso/technique.shtm

However, if you have a painting that you believe could potentially be a unique original work by Pablo Picasso, you would want to contact the current authority on Picasso's works, Claude Picasso.  Only Claude Picasso can designate a work as an authentic Picasso. Please find his information below:

Claude Picasso
8, rue de Volney
75002 Paris
FRANCE
T: +33 (0)1 47 03 69 70
F: +33 (0)1 47 03 69 60
E: info@picasso.fr

I hope that this information can be of some assistance.

Best of luck in your search!
