    If you still have the other 4, apparently they're worth £86M

    Will you take offers and can I collect to save on postage?

    Fs/ft rules state you got to show pic with your username etc! Plus you aren't allowed to sell forgeries! How do you know the one you have is genuine? You got a receipt for it?

    ASB will be locking this thread soon!! lol

    I have the other 4, I use them as a wallpaper paste table, they are awful paintings to be honest, they wont be worth owt.

    I dont think Picasso gave receipts,however it was acquired from a well known gallery very recently so its defiantly genuine

    A pic is no problem when officially for sale

    Sounds rare. I doubt many have that. I'll see what I can do.

    give them a good sanding down, and a coat of dulux emulsion

    Le Pigeon Aux Petits-Pois, sounds better in french, not as common

    Surely if it's acquisition is dodgy then it falls foul of the forum rules.....we'll need a ruling? Shall I pm ASB for advice? :whistling:

    will you do a swap for The Woman with the Fan by Amedeo Modigliani http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/47890000/jpg/_47890693_009338249-1.jpg

    got a 1970's print of that in the attic... everybody's nan had one...

    On a more serious note aparrently "Investigators think that international criminal gangs use art works effectively as a form of currency. For criminals dealing in drugs or weapon, a rolled up painting is away of carrying very large amounts of "currency", even if it is one tenth of the value at auction, the BBC's arts correspondent adds. " but it's obvious it's not. It has to be stolen to order?!?! Firstly, how are they ever going to sell those? Ever? They're so famous! Secondly the theives have target what I feel are specific paintings that follow a determined pattern, like for instance the 2 impressionist paintings with muted colours and the the 2 cubist paintings, it seems quite specific. To me it seems obvious that it is a art loving criminal who have 'ordered' them for his private collection. Who know's I might be wrong.
