Picasso and Portinari paintings stolen from Brazilian museum
INTERPOL has alerted its member countries to the theft of two highly valuable paintings – one by Pablo Picasso – from the Sao Paulo Museum of Art, Brazil, on Thursday 20 December.

‘Portrait of Susanne Bloch’, a Picasso oil on canvas measuring 65 x 54 cm, was stolen in the early hours by unknown intruders, along with ‘O Lavrador de Café’ (The coffee worker) by Candido Portinari, a major Brazilian artist, also oil on canvas and measuring 100 x 81 cm.

INTERPOL manages a database of stolen works of art, which is accessible to all its 186 member countries and circulates a DVD to a wider audience, notably police and customs services, museums, auction rooms, antique dealers, collectors and art lovers in general.
