Picasso drawing stolen from Union Square gallery

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

imageWanted: Brazen, well-dressed art thief who walked into the Weinstein Gallery near Union Square shortly before noon and walked out with a $200,000 Pablo Picasso drawing before vanishing in a taxi. Not what gallery president Rowland Weinstein expected upon returning from a honeymoon in Europe. He tells the Chronicle the theft will challenge his goal of putting high-end artwork in front of the public at street level.

Add: The 1965 pencil drawing, measuring 10 5/8 by 8 1/4 inches, was part of a collection that Picasso originally gave to his driver, Maurice Bresnu. It was purchased at auction this spring for $122,500.
