Houston Man Sells Picasso Artwork on Nextdoor

  • Nextdoor

A Houston man recently offered up a portrait that he listed as by Pablo Picasso on Nextdoor.

Known as an online forum for neighbors to share local information, sell items, and (oftentimes) complain to eachother, Nextdoor seems an unlikely platform to have success with art-selling, yet the neighborhood app has reportedly sold the Picasso.

John Kiger's post described the work as from Picasso's Blue Period (between 1901 and 1904) and claimed that the piece was authenticated, professionally framed and valued at $15,000. The artwork was marked as sold within a week.
