The thief broke through a hallway wall between 24 and 28 November while the owner was away and took art and other items worth $750,000 (£485,000).

Among prints taken were Lichtenstein's Thinking Nude and Moonscape, and Warhol's The Truck and Superman.

A series of eight signed Warhol prints, called Camouflage, were also taken.

Watches, jewellery and an oil painting by British artist Carl Fudge were also stolen.

So was a video recorder that had been connected to surveillance cameras.

The identity of the victim has not been disclosed.
