This is a tough one. Does anyone recognize this painting

Customer Question

This is a tough one. Does anyone recognize this painting from the corner shown? Could it be Picasso from either the Abstract or Cubist period? How would I go about finding out about it with such a small picture of just a piece of it. Of note: I will remember the painting if I see an image of it--just want to narrow the search a bit. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Unfortunately, there is really nothing at all that can be done from that photo. I have some quite sophisticated image recognition software, and a fairly good eye myself, and the photo is just too incomplete and blurry. The pipe across the middle further complicates things.

I can say that from what I can make out, it does not look at all like Picasso. But I can't narrow it down beyond that.

Nothing else at all is available?
