BBC News Sept. 19, 2011

The colonial religious portraits were taken from the Church of San Andres de Machaca in La Paz in 1997.

A Washington dealer handling the paintings for an American collector asked the London-based Art Loss Register to search its database of stolen art in May 2011.

Experts working for the Register were able to identify the paintings as those stolen from the church.
