Two Picassos stolen in Brazil

Reuters reports that two Picassos have been stolen in an armed robbery in Sao Paulo.
They made off with the Spanish artist's 1963 print "The Painter and the Model" and "Minotaur, Drinker and Women" from 1933, the state culture secretariat said.

They also snatched the print "Couple" by Brazilian artist Lasar Segall (1891-1957) and the painting "Women in a Window" by fellow Brazilian Emiliano Di Cavalcanti (1897-1976).

Yahoo News reports that the paintings were worth over half a million dollars.
