Picasso’s “Tête de Femme” a pencil drawing, which is estimated at $200,000, was stolen from a San Francisco art gallery on Tuesday. The suspect was caught on surveillance video walking away with the drawing in hand.
Police officials hope that by making this information available to the public it will increase the chances of recovering the painting. However, the gallery owner expresses his concern and his “greatest fear is that, with all this attention on it, the person will realize it’s unsellable and will dispose of it in a less-than-proper manner.”
Stay Tuned: Only time will tell if the publicity has hurt or helped the recovery of the stolen Picasso drawing.
