Accept the following reconstruction of the contemporary authority delegation structure in the art market regarding the works of Picasso: a work claimed to be by Picasso is authentic if it is has been certified as authentic by both Maya Widmaier-Picasso and Claude Ruiz-Picasso.

The modification was suggested to Scientonomy community by Mirka Loiselle on 19 May 2017.1 The modification is currently being evaluated; a verdict is pending.

Preamble

Two of Picasso's children, Maya Widmaier-Picasso and Claude Ruiz-Picasso, have acted as independent and sometimes conflicting authorities on the authenticity of their father's work. As a result, auction houses have, for the most part, required certificates of authenticity from both of them for the work to be considered genuine. This reveals an interesting authority delegation structure, where authority is delegated to a combined mosaic.

Modification
