Updated : April 16, 2019 11:12 PM IST

Two restored paintings by Dutch master Vincent van Gogh, View of the Sea at Scheveningen (1882) and Congregation Leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen (1884-1885), sit on easels during a presentation at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The two paintings were stolen and went missing for 14 years before being recovered in Italy in 2016. Both works were damaged and were found 'naked', without their frame.

The conservation treatment is now completed and the paintings and are back on view in the museum. After September 15, the recovered paintings will move to a new place in the museum. They continue to be on view for everyone to enjoy.
