Sao Paulo (dpa) - Thieves broke into Latin America's largest and most important museum early Thursday, making off with paintings by Pablo Picasso and Brazilian artist Candido Portinari.

Security cameras filmed the three thieves who took just three minutes inside the Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo shortly after 5 am.

The two paintings, Picasso's Portrait de Suzanne Bloch (1904) and Portinari's O Lavrador de Cafe (1939), are among the museum's most valuable pieces, but it could not provide their exact worth as they have never been put up for auction.

The museum in the Brazilian city's business centre will be closed for several days for police investigations.
