Famous painting stolen for third time

A famous Dutch painting known as Treble Dutch, has been stolen for a third time.

The painting is valued at around $20 million NZD.

The ‘Two Laughing Boys’ is a painting by Frans Hals and was stolen at the end of August.

The artwork was snatched from a small museum in the town of Leerdam, near the city of Utrecht.

The painting has been stolen twice before. In 1988 it was taken along with Jacob van Ruisdael’s work Forest View with Flowering Elderberry and recovered after three years. In 2011 the same pair of paintings were stolen for six months.

Police are now using forensic specialists to help with the investigation.
