Italian police have recovered two Van Gogh paintings stolen from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam museum in 2002: Two stolen Van Gogh paintings recovered after 14 years.

The paintings recovered aren’t among Van Gogh’s most famous, but I, personally, have lots of love for them.  Seascape at Scheveningen is an early work by the painter, very rare since Van Gogh only painted 2 seascapes (known), and  Congregation Leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen shows his perception of  life around him, Autumn colors giving us that sense of familiarity comfort.  I’m glad they will be back on display for our enjoyment.
