Both paintings date from the from the 1880’s and were painted relatively early in Van Gogh’s career.
Police in Naples said the works, described as being of “priceless value”, were discovered during a crackdown targeting the Naples-based Camorra crime clan.

The paintings were taken from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in a robbery in 2002 and according to a statement from the museum, they appear to be in relatively good condition.
