Picasso Sketchbook Stolen from Paris Museum

A sketchbook containing over 30 drawings by Pablo Picasso was stolen from a Paris museum sometime between Monday and noon, Tuesday. The museum was closed but for one private viewing on Tuesday. The sketchbook was borne in an unlocked glass display and is valued at nearly $11 million. Museum officials have declined comment on the matter.

The Picasso museum is set to close for renovations over the next two years. It contains thousands of the artist's works. Pablo Picasso is most famous for the Cubism movement he pioneered, though his work spanned several periods. He is widely considered the most prominent artist of the 20th-Century. Pablo Picasso died in 1973.
