$1 Million Reward Offered in Connection with Major Art Theft Stolen Artwork Includes Original Warhol Pieces NR09445rf

Los Angeles: Between Sept. 2 and 3, 2009, a multi-million-dollar collection of original artwork by renowned artist Andy Warhol was stolen from the West Los Angeles home of businessman Richard L. Weisman on Angelo Drive.  The stolen property included a collection of ten 40-inch by 40-inch pieces produced from 1977 to 1979 depicting famous athletes.  A portrait of Weisman was also taken.

A domestic employee entered Weisman's home on Sept. 3 and immediately discovered the artwork missing from the dining room walls.  She then left the residence and went to a neighbor's home where she called the police.

Accompanying this press release is a crime alert with details of the incident and images of the stolen artwork. 

Photos of the paintings can also be found at the following link:
