Reward posted for Picasso print taken from Milwaukee firm

MILWAUKEE — A fine art appraisal firm is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of stolen artwork by Pablo Picasso.

The original 1949 print was stolen last month from DeLind Fine Art Appraisals, LLC in downtown Milwaukee. DeLind Fine Art Appraisals co-owner Michael Goforth announced that the company is offering the reward for the print, which is worth up to an estimated $50,000.

Picasso did only 30 of the prints and signed each with a green pencil in the lower right corner.

Anyone with information about the theft or the etching and aquatint is asked to contact the Milwaukee Police Department or FBI.

This story has been changed to correct that DeLind Fine Art Appraisals is offering the reward, not the police. It also corrects that the art was stolen from DeLind Fine Art Appraisals, not a gallery, and corrects that the signature is in green pencil, not crayon.
