This is not good news from the art world. A Picasso painting and one by Candido Portinari were stolen from the Art Museum of Sao Paolo. Authorities think it was a hired theft since only these two paintings were stolen in the early morning hours. The thieves broke through a glass door that had no alarms, busted another door, and stole the paintings while security cameras recorded only activity that happened outside the building.
If you think this is just an isolated case of art theft by a careless museum, well it isn't. Slack security was the reason the Mona Lisa was lifted from the Louvre. In the United States there have been multiple acts of valuable art being stolen from museums that lacked even an alarm. I guess museums are betting these pieces are too well known to be stolen and marketed; but this casual attitude ignores the type of collector whom is suspected to be behind the theft in Sao Paolo, a wealthy private individual who wants the paintings for himself and has no urge to sell them on the open market.
