Tuesday 6 April 2021

The police have just announced the arrest of a suspect in connection with the burglary at Singer Laren and the theft of Van Gogh’s The Parsonage Garden at Nuenen in Spring on 30 March 2020. 

 “Compliments to the police for their detective work. No burglary should go unpunished. Unfortunately, this arrest does not mean that the painting has also been recovered. But I hope that it will soon lead the police to the painting, so that visitors to the Groninger Museum are able to enjoy this fabulous artwork again. It is now a year since the burglary, and every day we hope to receive good news.” Evert van Os, managing director

The museum is unable to make any further comments on the ongoing investigation. For more information, please see the press release issued by the police.
