Picasso painting found in Greek gorge years after heist

Greece has recovered a Picasso painting personally donated by the Spanish master to the Greek people, almost a decade after it was stolen alongside two other artworks in an audacious heist at the National Gallery.

“Head of a Woman,” gifted by Pablo Picasso to Greece in 1949, was recovered in Keratea, a rural area some 45 kilometers southeast of Athens, officials told a news conference.
