Sao Paolo Museum of Art, Brazil, 2007, recovered – Burglars stole Picasso's 1904 work 'Portrait of Suzanne Bloch', worth up to $50 million, and local painter Candido Portinari's 1939 'The Coffee Worker,' valued at about $5.5 million. The theft resulted in closure of the museum until they were recovered the following month. Here, two policemen guard the recovered works in January 2008 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
