The paintings were found in a warehouse, and the search continues for the suspected thief, the Times-Picayune reported.
Police are looking for Lee Szakats of New Orleans in connection with the thefts.
Police said two tips helped lead to the recovery of the artworks. A tipster identified Szakats as a suspect seen in surveillance videos walking into Rodrigue’s gallery Monday afternoon and walking out with the small paintings in a shopping bag.
A second tipster called the gallery, telling them where the paintings could be found.
Rodrigue, a Cajun artist, is best known for his blue dog paintings.
