Picasso’s La Coiffeusse (The Hairdresser) has been returned to France after being stolen in 2001.

It was seized by customs agents in New Jersey.

The painting was formerly housed in the Centre Georges Pompidou museum in Paris and is valued at $15m.

Kelly Currie, US federal attorney for east New York, said: "We are committed to extracting stolen cultural property from the grasp of the black market and restoring it to its rightful owners.”
