The Groninger Museum, located in the northern city of Groningen, said in a statement: “The work from 1884, oil on paper on panel (marouflé), is the only painting by Van Gogh in the collection of the Groninger Museum.

“We are very shocked by this news. The investigation is currently in full swing and no more can be said about it due to the police investigation.”

Jan Rudolph de Lorm, museum director of the Singer Laren, told Dutch news site NOS he was “shocked and incredibly pissed off” by the theft.

The Singer Laren museum is currently closed under measures to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Before its closure, the museum was hosting an exhibition titled “Mirror of the Soul”, with works by artists ranging from Toorop to Mondrian, in cooperation with Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum.
