Question
Who are the top three Picasso experts in the world?

Answer
Dear Dale, The question of the top experts for a particular artist is always debatable. If you google "picasso expert" you will find dozens of identified or self described experts.
Who is the top expert at a particular time somewhat depends upon who important art dealers consider to be the expert, but this often changes.
I would suggest if you have a painting you believe is a Picasso contact Sotheby's and/or Christie's auction house and tell them you are considering selling the painting at auction. They usually know who the currently acceptable expert is, and will do the work for you. Or you can contact the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, Spain.
Cordially,
Dan
