1993: Five Picasso paintings and other artwork valued at $52 million are stolen from the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm, Sweden. In the summer of 1994, three Swedes who tried to sell one of the paintings, "La Femme aux Yeux Noirs" (pictured), were arrested, leading to the recovery of three of the Picassos. The other paintings have yet to be recovered.
