House Clearance Discovers Picasso Sketch

picasso-house-clearance-cleanupOn the 28th July 2016, New Lanark in Scotland, will be hosting the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.  New Lanark is said to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing and historic settings that has ever been filmed for the Antiques Roadshow.  It is a world heritage site illustrating industrial history, which includes an 18th century mill village and a team of highly knowledgeable experts to educate any visitors, answering any questions they may have, during their time visiting New Lanark.

The House Clearance Jackpot

2015’s Antiques Roadshows filming day, attracted an incredible 35,000 people to attended the day and bring their personal belonging which were of interest and anything they wanted a valuation for.  These included mesmerising items, such as JFKs former jacket, an £80,000 musical penknife and a toy panda which once flew with the ‘Dambusters’ themselves.  But, what was the most spectacular find of the day, was a sketch which was believed to have been undertaken by Picasso.   This, however, was not the reason it was thought of to be so spectacular.  It was, in fact, due to it having bought from a sale post house clearance for just a couple of pounds.
