AN ART lover who has never won a competition before has won a Picasso worth �4,500 in a contest run by green charity 10:10.
Londoner Rosie Brown, 44, won the print after entering a competition for �10.10.
Rosie, who is a fan of Picasso, correctly answered the question set by climate change campaigners 10:10, "Who founded the Cubism movement?" The answer was Picasso.
Mum of two Rosie was presented with the rare Picasso print called Vallauris - 1956 Exposition in front of a tapestry reproduction of Picasso's iconic Guernica, which hung in the gallery in 1939.
