A notebook full of Pablo Picasso's sketches worth several million pounds has been stolen from the Paris museum that bears the painter's name.
A spokesman said the theft was discovered today at the Picasso Museum but it was not clear when or how it took place.
The museum is dedicated to the Spanish-born painter, a founder of the Cubist movement and leading 20th century artist.
