Guy wins a $1M Picasso for $135

  • This American definitely had luck on his side: Jeffrey Gonano had been looking for something to decorate his wall with and has now found a $1M Picasso painting to do it with. 

    The project manager at a fire sprinkler firm won the piece after buying a $135 ticket in a raffle. "I was looking for art and I thought I might as well," he said. 

    The raffle, in which 50,000 people took part, raised funds in order to save the city of Tyre. 

    "Buy a ticket and enjoy a double pleasure," Pablo's grandson Olivier Picasso had said. "The first one will be to help a really interesting project and the second one is, he, maybe to get a Picasso on your wall."
