A painting by Vincent van Gogh was stolen overnight from a Dutch museum closed for the Covid-19 epidemic.
The Singer Laren Museum just outside Amsterdam said that the painting is Van Gogh’s “The Parsonage Garden at Nuenen in Spring,” which had been on loan from the Groninger Museum.
“It is very bad for the Groninger Museum. It’s also very bad for Singer. But above all it is horrible for all of us, because art is there to be seen and shared by all of us, for society as a whole, to bring enjoyment, to bring inspiration, and also to bring comfort. Especially in this difficult time.”
