what picasso knew

"My father knew that bulls have two testicles, in addition to something very masculine."

Picasso’s daughter, Maya Widmaier-Picasso, when challenging the authenticity of the drawing Picador in a Bullfight (which lacked the aforementioned), listed online as an original Picasso at Costco.com for $146K. The question came up as part of a dispute involving another questionable Picasso that sold on consignment through Costco.com for $40K.

So when did Costco start listing Picassos?

Yes... Costco is not just for 10 pound jars of peanut butter anymore... Frankly, if I were Picasso, I would be rolling in my grave to know I was listed as art on the Costco website right next to the velvet Elvis towel collection and the Friends collector beersteins...
