Warhol Athlete Series Stolen in LA, $1 Million Dollar Reward!!

September 28, 2009

Earlier this September 10 Prints from Andy Warhol’s “Athlete Series” were stolen in Los Angeles from the home of Richard Weisman, whom personally commissioned the series from Warhol and chose the athletes. There is a $1 Million Dollar reward for information leading to the recovery of the works. Weisman offered this explanation for having commissioned the works, “I felt that putting this series together was a natural in that two of the most popular leisure time activities at that time were sports and art, yet to my knowledge they had no direct connection,” Weisman said. “I therefore thought that having Andy Warhol do the series would inspire people who loved sports to come into galleries, maybe for the first time, and people who liked art would take their first look at a sports superstar.”
