A total of six Wyeth paintings were stolen from the home of a businessman in 2013. Four were recovered from a pawn shop in Beverly Hills, California, but the remaining two were never found.

On Tuesday, the FBI announced the reward and asked for the public’s help to find the missing paintings, identified as “The Encounter on Freshwater Cliff” and “Go Dutton, and that Right Speedily.”

Three men have been prosecuted in the theft, including Oscar Roberts, an aspiring rapper who used the stolen paintings to secure a $100,000 loan from a Beverly Hills pawn shop. The shop, The Dina Collection, is featured in a reality TV series, “Beverly Hills Pawn.”
