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.
Thrilled Rosie says she plans to hang it in her home and added: "Whenever I go to the Tate, I always go and look at Picasso, but you never think you're going to own anything like that, do you?
"It's just too good to be true - I've never won anything before."

Rosie is a strong supporter of the 10:10 campaign, which aims to reduce the UK's carbon footprint by 10% in 2010.
