On the heels of one art thief’s claims that he discarded the paintings he stole from a Paris museum comes another report of two Picasso works recovered in Serbia after a Swiss robbery. A Swiss broadcast broke the news:
In a program aired Friday, prosecutor Charles Faessler told said that Switzerland has submitted a request to Serbia for the paintings to be returned. He provided no information on the exact location of the paintings or possible suspects in the theft. The works, Tête de cheval (Head of horse), created by Picasso in 1962 and Verre et pichet (Glass and pitcher), painted in 1944, were stolen from an exhibition in the small town of Pfaeffikon, near Zurich, in February 2008. They had been loaned there by the Sprengel Museum in Hannover, Germany.
