Another Theft in Marseille

Another theft in France, this time from a private residence in Marseille.  Five works, including a Picasso lithograph were stolen in a violent theft.  The owner was assaulted during the robbery.  Reports indicate that two men managed to get past the home’s security gates and take the works.  Mark Durney asks:  “Was this theft inspired by the audacious theft from Paris’s Museum of Modern Art?”
