ART THEFT Picasso Drawing Stolen in S.F. Weinstein Gallery

Picasso Drawing Stolen in S.F.

It's not quite The Thomas Crown Affair, but a "well-dressed man in dark glasses" did walk out of the Weinstein Gallery in San Francisco with a drawing by Pablo Picasso worth more than $200,000. The bold thief apparently simply grabbed the 1965 pencil sketch TĂȘte de Femme (Head of a Woman) Wednesday morning and disappeared into a cab. It's not sure what the cat burglar will do with the artwork since it won't be easy to sell it now.
