A retired electrician in southern France who worked for Pablo Picasso says he has hundreds of previously unknown works by the artist. The treasure trove of 271 pieces includes lithographs, cubist paintings, notebooks and a watercolour and is said to be worth about 60m euros ($78 Million US Dollars). Retired electrician Pierre Le Guennec, 71, reportedly says Picasso gave him the works as gifts. But the estate's administrators have filed a case for alleged illegal receipt of the works of art.

New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art says Picasso produced more than 20,000 works of art during his long career, but hundreds have been listed as missing - in part because he was so prolific. --Credited Source; BBC World News Europe and The AP News Agency.
