Picasso Artwork Valued at $85,000 Stolen in Miami

MIAMI – A silver plate designed by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso and valued at $85,000 was stolen during an art exhibition in Miami.

David Smith, owner of the Amsterdam-based Leslie Smith gallery, told the Miami Herald that the stolen work, created by Picasso (1881-1973) in 1956, is titled “Visage aux Mains” (Face with Hands) and was being displayed at Art Miami in Midtown, the main satellite fair of the Art Basel in Miami Beach show.

He noticed on Friday that the plate, which is engraved with a smiling face and stick-finger hands, was no longer on the wall where it had been hanging the day before.

“I’ve been doing art shows all my life. Even when I was a kid, I went with my parents,” Smith, who reported the theft to Miami police on Friday, said. “I’ve never, ever had anything stolen.”

Police dusted for fingerprints but have not yet provided information on possible suspects.

Art Miami is one of numerous parallel exhibitions that are organized in conjunction with Art Basel, a four-day event that is held at the Miami Beach Convention Center and draws tens of thousands of people to the city every year.
