Masterpieces stolen from Amsterdam in daring heist 14 years ago turn up in Italian mafia’s country mansion
The works, “Congregation Leaving the Reformed Church in Nuene” painted in 1884-85 and “View of the Sea at Scheveningen” in 1882, are both from the early period of the painter’s short career.
The works were recovered from the Naples mafia, they said.
The Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam said the works were found during a “massive, continuing investigation” by Italian prosecutors and organised crime officials.
Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) is widely considered the greatest Dutch artist after Rembrand.
