A rare, original Pablo Picasso etching - worth $35,000 to $50,000 - was stolen from a shop in downtown Milwaukee.
The prints resembling a watercolor, produced from a copper plate etched with nitric acid, has a bold, green signature by Picasso.
Theft happened between noon and 2 p.m., DeLind said.
"So somebody maybe just got lucky". "But it was shock and a big disappointment.I think most people are genuinely good and people don't just steal things".
Bob Wittman said, however, that he's confident that a 1949 Picasso aquatint that was stolen from a Milwaukee gallery last week will be found. Not even identifying the artist.
"It just walked off the wall", DeLind said Saturday.
Galleries throughout the Midwest, as well as auctioneers, have been notified about the theft, he said. The store also doesn't have surveillance cameras.
DeLind has spent the weekend contacting museums and art galleries around the country in the hopes that the thief may try to sell the piece and get busted.
When asked about what he would say to the thief, DeLind responded: "First of all, bring it back. We always recover these artworks when they come back to market".
