The Federal Bureau of Investigation recovered $10 million in stolen art this week, but they're seeking further information on the theft of art that included paintings from Marc Chagall and Diego Rivera. It was stolen from a home in Encino in mid-2008. These images, showing what all of that stolen art look like, were released Friday.

Authorities are offering a $25,000 reward for any information leading up to the arrest and conviction of the person or group arrested for the heist.

There is currently one suspect, Raul Espinosa, 46, aka Jorge Alberto Lara, in custody, according to the FBI. Espinosa was arrested and charged with the possession of the paintings.

The investigation is being conducted by both the FBI and the Los Angeles Police Department. Anyone with information on the case has been asked to contact the authorities.
