QUICK TAKES

Art from Brazil heist found

August 08, 2008|From the Associated Press

Brazilian police say they've recovered two more stolen paintings but have yet to find a missing Picasso from a Sao Paulo art museum heist in June.

Police spokesman Mauricio Rodrigues said that officers recovered the paintings by Brazilian artists Emiliano Di Cavalcanti and Lasar Segall on Wednesday night.

Three of four paintings -- worth $630,000 and stolen from the Estacao Pinacoteca Museum on June 12 -- have now been recovered, including the Picasso print "The Painter and the Model," discovered in an attic on the city's outskirts in July.

Picasso's "Minotaur, Drinker and Women" is still missing. Two suspects have been arrested, but police said a third is still at large.
