stolen Van Gogh back in museum

Two paintings were stolen from the Van Gogh museum in 2002. Among them, this painting of the church were his father was the minister. Vincent made this in 1885 and gave it to his mother, who was not able to visit the church because she had a broken leg. A few months later, Vincent’s father died and Vincent changed the painting. He added a group of people in mourning clothes, and autumn leaves to the trees. This was the first painting that Vincent ever gave to his parents. Now the painting is back on view in the museum.
