Sao Paulo Heist Update

Picasso - Minotaur, Drinker And Women (1933) and The Painter And The Model (1963)Here are the two Picasso's stolen from the Estacao Pinacoteca gallery in Sao Paulo, Brazil (title link):
Left: Minotaur, Drinker And Women (1933)
Right: The Painter And The Model (1963).
The three robbers paid 4 reals (£1.25) to enter the gallery, promptly went to the second-floor gallery and overpowered three unarmed guards at gunpoint. They put the framed artworks they wanted into a bag and walked out of the gallery. A 10-minute job! Easy.
