A painting by Vincent van Gogh was stolen overnight from a Dutch museum that is currently closed due the coronavirus pandemic.The Singer Laren museum, just outside the Dutch capital city of Amsterdam, said van Gogh’s “The Parsonage Garden at Nuenen in Spring” was stolen in an overnight raid.

The painting — created in 1884 by the Dutch master, according to Reuters — was on loan from another Dutch institution, the Groninger Museum in the city of Groningen.

“I am shocked and unbelievably pissed off…….. 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.”
