Italian police investigating drug crimes discovered two Van Gogh paintings that vanished in a 2002 robbery. The paintings were found in a farmhouse where police seized over $22 million dollars’ worth of assets. The director of the Van Gogh Museum Axel Rueger said investigators had contacted them so that art experts could determine whether or not the paintings were authentic. He said the paintings were stolen in December 2002. Although two suspects had been arrested, the paintings had not been recovered. Rueger said, “After all these years, you no longer dare count on a possible return. The paintings have been found! That I would be able to ever pronounce these words is something I had no longer dared to hope for.”–By Jim L. Wilson & Jim Sandell.
