Van Gogh on display at Winona art museum
Winona (AP) — The Minnesota Marine Art Museum in Winona is hoping to make a splash with its latest addition, Vincent Van Gogh's "The Beach of Scheveningen."
The Winona Daily News reports that 1882 painting by the famous artist was presented to musuem supporters on Sunday, along with four other works.
The paintings are on loan from the collection of Winonans Bob Kierlin and his wife Mary Burrichter.
Museum curator Jon Swanson says he hopes the new painting will help draw people in.
Once inside, visitors will find paintings by Claude Monet, Winslow Homer and Pierre-Auguste Renoir and other masters.
Kierlin says he bought the painting in March from a private dealer in Switzerland.
