Picasso did not draw this miserable
amateur drawing. Yes, we do in fact know that Mr. Douglas Cooper (a
close friend of Picassoís) once said:
done by a frenetic dotard in the anteroom of death".
statement was aimed at Picassoís late works. But this drawing lies
miles away from Picassoís style that even in his deathbed he couldnít
possibly have done such a bad drawing.
And we, artfakes, never heard that other than Picassoís two children,
his son Claude and his daughter Maya write out certificates. We believe
itís a fake. Why the lack of the letterhead for instance? From where
does this certificate come? From this one can read that the drawing has
been exposed. Yes, in a kindergarten perhaps, but never on a Picasso
exhibition thatís for sure.
From the certificate below one can read a signed statement that the
drawing at the verso is an original Picasso drawing. But the enclosed
drawing isnít necessarily the one offered for sale at eBay. And who is
this person who signed that Isabella Picasso has signed the certificate?
This requires that the one in question actually has seen Isabelle
Picasso signing the certificate. But has he? Or has she? We, artfakes,
consider the drawing as well as the certificate one big fraudulent fuss
meant to impose upon less gifted buyers.
Graphite on paper titled "Woman's Bust", signed and executed,
Pablo Picasso, 06-04-72. This original Picasso drawing was given to

in Provence just before a dispute that strained their relationship. This
drawing also includes the original letter from Paloma Picasso attesting
to the authenticity and referencing this piece from an exhibit as well
as a recent, notarized photocertificate from Isabelle Picasso, his
granddaughter and a member of the Picasso Administration. This drawing
is guaranteed to be an original drawing by Pablo Ruiz Picasso and is not
