Paris, France (CNN) -- Interpol has issued a global alert for a Picasso painting and four other works stolen from a Paris art museum -- a sign that authorities believe thieves may have taken the paintings outside the country.
"These extraordinary paintings by these great masters are so recognizable that they will be difficult to sell in any market," Jean-Michel Louboutin, Interpol's executive director of police services, said in a statement released by the agency Saturday.

We are dealing with an extreme level of sophistication," he said in a statement posted on the museum's website.
Girard estimated the artwork was worth about 100 million euros ($123.7 million).
