View of the Sea at Scheveningen, 1882 by Vincent Van Gogh

View of the Sea at Scheveningen was stolen from Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in Dec. 7, 2002, along with another Van Gogh's painting Church of Nuenen. Two thieves used a 15-foot ladder to climb onto the museum's roof and break into the building, escaping by sliding down a rope. These two paintings were recovered by Italian police 14 years after theft.
