BUENOS AIRES (REUTERS).- Some 77 paintings and other art objects by national and international artists valued at about $ 4 million were recovered by police in Argentina on Saturday.

Among the recovered works are paintings by artists like Antonio Berni, Raul Soldi, Lino Spilimbergo and other Argentine artists, together with original porcelain of high value.

The objects were stolen last November from a private collection in the town of Pilar about 60 kilometers from Buenos Aires.

The collection belongs to Doctor Omar Mantovani, who worked with the current coach of Argentina’s National soccer team, Diego Maradona, said sources consulted.

Police sources said that five persons had been arrested and that ten paintings still had to be recovered.
