Picasso Works Stolen in Paris

Two important paintings by Picasso estimated by the police to be together worth about $66 million have been stolen from the Left Bank home of the artist’s granddaughter Diana Widmaier-Picasso, the authorities announced today.

Paris police officials said the two oils, “Maya With Doll” from 1938 and “Portrait of Jacqueline” from 1961, were taken from Ms. Widmaier-Picasso’s house on the Rue de Grenelle in the city’s chic Seventh Arrondissement sometime overnight between Monday and Tuesday.
