Million dollar reward posted for Warhol art stolen in LA
LOS ANGELES – Andy Warhol art stolen from a west Los Angeles home is worth a million dollars to anyone who can help return it to the owner.
LAPD began a poster campaign on Wedesday offering the million dollars for the valued after collection which depicts diverse famous people such as Muhammad Ali, Brazilian soccer star Pele, Chris Evert, Tom Seaver, Jack Nicklaus, OJ Simpson, Kareem Abdul Jabar, Willie Shoemaker, Dorothy Hamill and others.
Police did not say whether the reward is offered by the police department or by the owner.
The art was stolen between Sept. 3 and 4 during a burglary at a home along Angelo Drive in West Los Angeles.
The art was hanging on the wall of the home.
Police said other similar art of the same people exists, but in different colours.
Warhol – who coined the phrase ’15 minutes of fame’ – died in 1987. He moved in elite circles in Hollywood and among aristocrats.
