Individual Offers A $10,000 Reward In Art Theft Case
A person who asked to remain anonymous has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest or conviction of the men who stole three Jackson Pollock paintings last Thursday.
The paintings were taken from the Mt.Auburn St. apartment of Reginald R. Isaacs, Norton Professor of Regional Planning. The three works are worth an estimated $500,000. The most valuable of the three works is a Pollock black and white entitled "no. 7,1951".
The thieves broke into the apartment between 3:15 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. while Isaacs was rowing on the Charles River. Two witnesses saw two men carry the paintings down the fire escape and place the canvases into a dark-colored car.
The witnesses described the men as six feet tall, slim, and between 25 and 30 years old. They said the car was a foreign make.
