Priceless Warhols Stolen From LA Home!

| Filed under: ZportzLegal Matters

10 Andy Warhol original paintings were stolen from a Los Angeles home last week!

The theft, which LAPD is calling one of the "largest residential burglaries that has occurred in LA", took place at the home of art collector Richard Weisman, whose 10 paintings from Warhol's Athlete Series were stolen between September 2nd and September 3rd while Weisman was out of town.

The lifted paintings include portraits of Muhammad Ali, O.J. Simpson, Chris Evert, Dorothy Hammill, Kareem Abdul Jabar, Pele, Jack Nicklaus and even a portrait of Weisman himself.

How crushing!

The LAPD currently have no leads in the case, other than the burglar appears to be "somebody that might have had a little more knowledge about the house and the occupants."

Weisman has offered a $1 million reward for the Warhols, and LAPD are almost positive that "at some point [the paintings] will show up."

We hope!

    They will get them back. This might end up being a "ransom" situation. They will get the paintings back, and they'll bust the guys who did it. When they steal something too famous as this, they can't exactly hide it. The whole point of a painting is to look at it. Who would buy something this hot? Even some Arab oil guy in a foreign country would want to hang it on the wall and brag that he has it. So they'll find it. I think the most amazing thing is how they broke in. You gotta know there's a whole lot of security people all over the world all looking at this.

    GOOD. COLLECTORS ARE THE CANCER OF THE ART COMMUNITY. A GOOD 75 PERCENT OF THEM KNOW ABSOLUTE DICK ABOUT GENERAL ART HISTORY AND WHAT THEY ACTUALLY OWN. WHILE WEISMAN ISN'T AS BAD AS MOST AND IS A KIND MAN, COLLECTORS IN GENERAL MAKE ME CHOKE…

    He was trying to sell them earlier in the year to no avail. Funny how other art in the house remained.

    Good grief! I don't have a big fancy schmancy home, but even I have a home alarm on 3 entrys and a motion alarm. Like Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, these people etc. How hard is it to set your alarm when you have priceless artwork in it?????

    KIRK CAMERON TALKS ABOUT GAY EXPERIENCE THAT TURNED HIM TO CHRIST ON CHRISTIAN TV. HE ELUDES TO NEIL PATRICK HARRIS AS THE OTHER TEEN BOY…. GO TO YOUTUBE AND SEARCH FOR kirk cameron is gay. 2 videos



  14. 14

    and where would the crooks sell them? can't be displayed. either an inside job or a private collector who basically wanted the pictures and someone went and did the job for him/her



  15. 15

    Those look more like cartoons than paintings. What was the total value of the theft? $200 dollars. Sounds about right if they had expensive frames.



  16. 16

    Sounds like a covetous Jew trying to pull a scam.

    One of the domestics will turn another of the domestics (or family member) in. The squealer will be party to the crime, the art returned and the cash reward will not be made manifest.

    PS brush up on your art history, poser, these are not priceless warhols by any measure.
