Couple Convicted Of Possessing Picassos

Pierre Le Guennec, a retired electrician from the Côte d’Azur, and his wife, Danielle, have been convicted finally of possessing stolen goods in the form of a staggering cache of 271 works by Pablo Picasso. Pierre Le Guennec said the works had been a present to him from the painter after doing odd jobs on his estate. A court in Grasse handed the couple a two-year suspended sentence, ending years of intrigue surrounding a mysterious suitcase full of drawings that the couple took to Paris in 2010 to show Claude Picasso, the late painter’s son who represents the artist’s heirs and estate.
