Gallery Art owner Kenneth Hendel holds on tightly to Picasso's ‘Portrait de Marie-Therese’ at his gallery in Aventura on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. Hendel received a letter from a New York law firm saying that the Picasso in his gallery was stolen from the Tisch family. The gallery owner contends he bought the art from another dealer - paid $350,000 for it — and that he knows nothing about it being stolen.
