Pablo Picasso's Birthday
Pablo Picasso is considered one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. Today is his birthday.

Great Art Thefts examines famous art crimes and the hunt to find the thieves. Part of the Treasure Hunters series, 'Great Art Thefts' offers a crosscurricular mix of science & technology and history, with a fun, dramatic approach. Art thefts covered in the book include the Mona Lisa, the Scream, the Millennium theft from the Ashmolean Museum, and the greatest ever single art theft: the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist. The book also looks at the motives for these crimes, and the measures that can be taken to protect valuable works of art from unscrupulous criminals.
