The 1949 painting, known as "Cartel des Don Juan Tenorio," appears to have been stolen on Tuesday from The Venus Over Manhattan gallery on Madison Avenue, police sources said.
Police sources say surveillance cameras show a man wearing a dark shirt with white polka dots enter the gallery with a black cloth bag. He is later seen on cameras leaving the gallery with the painting, police sources said.
The painting was included in a display with other paintings as part of an exhibit.
