    THERE is no open market for the art works by Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Modigliani and Leger  stolen in Paris.  Valued at 100 million euro they are all very well known. They may be ransomed or traded by organised criminals for prices far lower than their market value.

    The paintings were reported missing on May 20 after workers noticed a smashed window as they were opening up the Musee d’Art Moderne located at 11 Avenue du President Wilson in the 16th district. A single masked intruder was caught on a video surveillance camera entering the museum by a window.

    The missing works are Pablo Picasso’s Dove with Green Peas , Henri Matisse’s Pastorale, Georges Braque’s Olive tree near l’Estaque , Amedeo Modigliani’s Woman on the range and Fernand Leger’s Still life with candlesticks.
