Have You Seen These Paintings?

Twenty-three years ago, 2 men dressed as police officers tied up the security guards and stole 13 works of art worth $500 million from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.  Yesterday, the FBI announced that they knew the identity of the thieves but the art hasn’t been located. The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is offering a $5 million reward for the return of those 13 pieces of art stolen in 1990.
