The seller, timcollie75, 0, United Kingdom:
What is being offered is a large cubist collage attributed to Pablo Picasso, from the period 1912 - 13 when he did many similar works, some in conjunction with Braque.
The work has many stamps and markings on it which help to trace its history but unfortunately we cannot work out a full provenance at present so it must be offered as attributed to. one on the stamps is from Galerie Georges Giroux, the influentual Belgian gallery, which exhibited Picasso, and held sales from about 1916 - 1960. A full catalogue raisonné of activity has been printed which would help to get a clearer history of the piece. The is another unreadable stamp in red on the rear and one on the bottom front right corner. A Schwatz and Picasso Kat no 15 as well as WA12 Serner Zurich are also present on the back.;
Always the same story.

The seller, yg_spinsation, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia:
This amazing drawing was acquired in Western Europe, part of an estate which contained a lot of artworks. It is attributed to the revolutionary master PABLO PICASSO, with "Picasso" signed clearly on the lower left. The date is unknown and the drawing is intact in GREAT condition, quite a big work measuring approx 12 inches wide and 16.5 inches high. The medium is graphite, pastel and colored pencil, and it has been stored unframed. It would look spectacular if framed. The provenance is uncertain, thought to be part of a private European collection.
The drawing is a fake.
The signature is a fake course.
The seller can't sell it as attributed
