According to BBC, police in Brazil say they have recovered two paintings worth millions of dollars stolen last month from a museum in the center of Sao Paulo. Two suspects were put under arrest over the theft of the works, by Pablo Picasso and the Brazilian artist Candido Portinari. The pictures were found undamaged leaning against a wall in a house on the outskirts of Sao Paulo. Shortly after they were stolen it emerged that the two paintings, along with some 8,000 other works of art in the gallery, were not insured.

Although there had been fears that the paintings had already been smuggled abroad they were in fact recovered in a district in the eastern part of the Sao Paulo metropolitan area, and two suspects were arrested. The two paintings are said to be worth at least $55 million.

Police were led to the house where the discovery was made by a suspect who had been arrested. The paintings were fpound covered in plastic, leaning against a wall.
