Marina Picasso, a granddaughter of the artist, plans to sell inherited works from her 10,000-piece collection--privately, on her own. And the move has some in the art market rattled.
Picasso, 64, wants to give to charitable causes. Selections from 300 paintings, along with ceramics and other mediums in the trove, would be sold to support her philanthropic interests. And the sales would also purge the granddaughter, who has felt shunned by the tangled Picasso clan, of a sad past.
Said Marina Picasso, "I didn't have a grandfather."
