MILWAUKEE -- DeLind Fine Art Appraisals, LLC announced on Thursday, May 9 that it will be ending the $10,000 reward for the safe return of the Picasso stolen last year. The Picasso reward will end this Monday, May 13.

The Picasso print, dubbed ‘Torero,’ was lifted from DeLind Fine Art Appraisals where it was on display in February 2018. It’s one of 30 originally produced by the artist, making it both rare and valuable. The piece is worth an estimated $35,000 to $50,000.

The 1949 print was in the downtown Milwaukee art gallery at the corner of Mason and Jefferson.

The piece is pretty distinguishable. Picasso only did 30 of them and he signed each with a green crayon in the lower right corner.
