Armed robbers get away with two Picassos

Three armed robbers entered the Pinacoteca Museum in São Paulo (Brazil) in broad daylight, managing to get away with two prints of Picasso's "The Artist and His Model" and "Minotaur, Drinker and Women".
Two oil paintings from the artists Di Cavalcanti and Lasar Segall were also taken.
The four works are estimated in $600,000.
More development here and here.

wow! I am always so surprised when I hear of these famous paintings being stolen. I guess if a thief really wants something regardless of the risks they will find a way. Great blog!
