More on the Picasso Sketchbook Theft

Art Theft Central's Mark Durney on the recent theft from the Picasso Museum in Paris: "Its astonishing that given the desirability of works of art by Picasso and the tremendous sums of money the Picasso Museum has spent on sketches in the past that they would not have better security measures implemented protecting such a significant part of their collection." He's also not convinced the sketchbook would be "as difficult to sell as many have been led to believe."
