The seller, palm-beach-gallery, Melbourne, Australia:
This interesting pastel painting measures approx. "11 x 8". The painting appears to be early C20th and it is in good condition. It is indistinctly signed and dated. It was found amongst a large number of works and does not have any provenance.
It's quite obvious that the seller knows quite well that the signature says Picasso. He doesn't say so, he doesn't tell anybody, he plays the dummy, and he isn't thick either as two short planks selling a valuable piece of art for a slam, he just want potential buyers to think just that hoping to play the fool with somebody, who might think on the other hand that the seller doesn't know, what he is up to, namely trying to foist a fake off upon somebody. What a way to con a man we'd say! But didn't he forget artfakes?, 'cause there is one thing, you just can't do: You can't fool artfakes!

Thank you to bidder who emailed to say that Picasso never signed in ink & all his ink drawings were signed in pencil. I am no expert so cannot comment on this but bidders can do their own research. Thank you.
A nice watercolour. Not a painting and not a genuine work of art by Pablo Picasso.
