Chicago artist marks centennial of Armenian killings with Guernica-size work
By Tracy Rucinski CHICAGO (Reuters) - One hundred years after the mass killing of Armenians, a Chicago artist has created a monumental painting to honor the victims and celebrate a culture that nearly vanished. The 1915 massacre of Armenians by Ottoman troops became a defining element of Armenian national identity. Seeking to promote awareness of the tragedy and Armenian culture, Chicago-based artist Jackie Kazarian embarked on a painting of enormous scale in an endeavor called Project 1915. The painting, which Kazarian has titled Armenia (Hayastan), will be displayed for the first time in Chicago's Mana Contemporary gallery from April 17 to May 29.

French court orders ex-employee to hand back Picasso works
By Matthias Galante GRASSE, France (Reuters) - Nearly 300 works by Pablo Picasso must be returned to the family of the late artist, a French court ruled on Friday, rejecting testimony from a former employee who said the painter's last wife gave them to him as a gift over 50 years ago. Pierre Le Guennec, 75, a retired electrician, and his wife Danielle, 71, were given a suspended sentence of two years in prison for handling stolen goods. They were also ordered to hand over the 271 works, estimated at between 60-120 million euros ($64-$128 million), to the heirs of Picasso, who died in 1973. Le Guennec, employed by Picasso in his last home in Mougins in southeast France, told the court in Grasse that Jacqueline Picasso offered him the box containing unsigned collages, sketches and paintings with the consent of her husband in either 1971 or 1972.
