PICASSO’s granddaughter is selling off a collection of his works, and his famous French Riviera villa, for an estimated €242 million.

Marina Picasso, who claims her ‘cold’ grandfather left her and her brother to grow up in poverty, is selling at least seven of his works.

She is also offering her grandfather’s estate in Cannes, ‘La Californie’, following the deaths of Picasso and her brother.

Marina claims that she and her brother used to visit the artist as children at the villa, only to be told to wait at the gate until Picasso had finished working.

Despite having a world-famous artist as a grandfather, she says she grew up in poverty, with Picasso unwilling to provide any financial assistance to the family.
