Singer Laren museum in Laren was closed to the public when at around 3:15 a.m on March 30th some thieves smashed a large glass door at the front of the museum to access the building. According to the local authorities perpetrators had vanished by the time Police arrived, stealing Dutch master’s painting. The painting was on loan from the Groninger Museum in Groningen, the Netherlands, and it was painted when Van Gogh was living in Neunen, where his father was a pastor. Police have launched a criminal investigation and are requesting any security footage captured by cameras in the neighborhood and questioning local residents. Anna Singer established The museum  in 1954 and it includes works by Dutch artists Chris Beekman, Jan Toorop and Herman Kruyder, among others.
