Fake Picasso

"Psst, do you want to buy a Picasso painting?"
"Sure, how much?"
"Cheap, 1.5 million"

Two weeks ago in Madrid, Spanish police arrested four people trying to sell a forged Picasso oil painting for 1.5 million dollars.    The canvas was a counterfeit version of a 1964 work.  These people also provided fake document signed by Paloma Picasso, one of the painter's daughters. 
Three art brokers were arrested and the current owner, a well-known Madrid antiquarian.
