Early Picasso Nude Discovered in English Bedroom!

A nude watercolor painted by Pablo Picasso when he was aged about 20 has been found in the bedroom of a house in south-west England. The work was found stacked with two works by other major artists, George Stubbs and Alfred Munnings, both of whom specialized in painting horses.

"Etreinte" (Embrace) shows a nude Picasso in an intimate embrace with his girlfriend Louise Lenoir, known as Odette. Louise was Picasso’s first girlfriend. It was painted in 1901 or 1902, when the Spanish artist would have been 20 or 21 and still struggling for recognition. “Entreinte” was authenticated by Picasso in 1969.

According to reports in the British media, each work is expected to sell for up to £100,000 (€126,000 or $199,000) when they go on the auction block at Dukes of Dorchester, Dorset, on April 10th. The conservative estimate for the Picasso takes into account the fact that “Entreinte” is not one of his iconic works and it is a watercolor as opposed to an oil painting. However, given the sales records for Picasso’s work and the frenzy on the art market, “Entreinte” could fetch as much as £3 million.

Picasso, Entreinte, c. 1901-1902

The identity of the owner is unknown but is believed to be a member of an international royal family.
