Another Brazil Heist

Picasso - Suzanne Bloch (1904); Candido Portinari - The Coffee Worker (1939)It looks as though the Russian Mafia are back in Brazil for their annual winter break. Last year they hit Rio de Janeiro twice, in February (CLICK) and March (CLICK). Yesterday at dawn they broke into Sao Paulo's Museum of Art and stole Picasso's Suzanne Bloch (1904) and Candido Portinari's The Coffee Worker (1939). Their modus operandi may vary, but their bad taste in art is constant. This tosh is worth £50m ($100m)!
