Van Gogh Church Painting Found

Italian police recover from the Naples mafia two important Van Gogh paintings stolen in a 2002 raid on an Amsterdam museum.

CHR Comment: The articles linked here describe the theft of Van Gogh’s paintings and their recovery. They refer to the Reformed Church in Nuenen and the fact that Van Gogh’s father was a minister for the congregation. I’m adding a photograph of the church building as it appears today.
