Picasso Paintings Stolen

Updated:
PARIS (AP) _ At least two Picasso paintings, worth a total of nearly $66 million, were stolen from the artist's granddaughter's house in Paris, police said Wednesday.

The paintings, ``Maya and the Doll'' and ``Portrait of Jacqueline,'' disappeared overnight Monday to Tuesday from the chic 7th arrondissement, or district, a Paris police official said.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said they were worth nearly $66 million.

The director of the Picasso Museum, Anne Baldassari, said several paintings and drawings were stolen from the home of Diana Widmaier-Picasso.

``It was a very large theft,'' Baldassari said, without giving details.

Police only confirmed the theft of the two paintings.

``Maya and the Doll'' portrays Maya Widmaier, the artist's daughter and Widmaier-Picasso's mother.

No other details were immediately available.
