Guy wins a $1M Picasso for $135
December 20 , 2013
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."
