Picasso stolen from a Museum in Brazil


Thieves broke into Sao Paulo’s leading art museum before dawn on Thursday and stole two oil paintings, including Picasso’s 1904 Portrait of Suzanne Bloch valued $ 50 million.

They also took a painting by Portinari, a major Brazilian artist. The Coffee Worker (O Lavrador de Cafe), painted in 1939, is considered one of Portinari’s most famous works.
