Van Gogh Museum offers reward for information about theft of paintings

The Van Gogh Museum is offering a substantial reward of up to euro 100,000 for information leading to the recovery of paintings stolen from the museum in December last year and the arrest and conviction of those involved. On 7th December 2002 thieves broke into the Van Gogh Museum and made off with two works by Vincent van Gogh (View of the sea at Scheveningen and Congregation leaving the Reformed church at Nuenen). A police investigation is still underway.

The payment of any reward is dependent on the recovery of both the paintings in good condition.

The reward is offered by the museum and this announcement is made in collaboration with the Amsterdam police. Anyone responding to this offer with information is asked to contact J.M. Kok at Cunningham PolakSchoute in Amsterdam: +31 (0)20 626 45 35 or +31 (0)6 53 994 387 (dossier number 447434).
