Pablo Picasso ‘Guitar et partition Sur un gueridon’ On the back of our newly purchased Pochoir is an interesting provenance stamp: ‘Marina Picasso, Succession Pablo Picasso.’ On the artists death in 1973 he was intestate. This caused considerable problems because although he had 4 children from 3 different mothers only one was legitimate. It therefor transpired that the lions share of the estate passed to his grand daughter, Marina Picasso. Marina instructed Jan Krugier Galerie to act for her. Their first step was to catalogue the works which they did before giving each piece a stamp and archive number. This is the provenance from which our work comes. Marina has, over the years, sold many works, each with this valuable provenance and the money raised has mainly been used for charitable purposes #marinapicasso #pablopicasso #fairheadfineart🇬🇧 #valuableprovenance #inheritence
"My childhood was when I first discovered loneliness. It became my refuge where all the stories began and I needed to fill that space with something that didn’t exist in reality. I guess my art is the extension of that 'something'. Derived from loneliness."

Emma Larsson has been painting almost her whole life. Based in Stockholm, she considers herself an autodidact artist and sculptor whose imagery touches the boundary between colouristic dreamscapes and melancholy figures. Having previously worked with mostly oil and acrylic, Emma has recently devolved into her own expressive abstract watercolours. She also sculpts ceramics, where the characteristic figures are lifted from the paper to adopt new living forms. For the past ten years she has also run her own design/illustration business.
Her main interest outside art is collecting and selling vintage dresses, mostly from the 1960s-1970s.
She describes her work as "an ongoing exploration without rules and conventions. Starting with a blank sheet, I never know the outcome. In that sense, every piece is an abstract fragment of who I am."
