A disappointing image of a painting that has been in private hands and apparently not photographed properly in decades. After a sale of the piece in 1964 it has been listed as owner and location unknown. Several websites online dealing with Vincent van Gogh claim that the painting has been stolen, but no details or other information is provided. Wikipedia also states that the piece was stolen, but without any footnotes or links to realistic information on a theft this is likely untrue, and possibly the source of other websites repeating unverified information.

Neither Interpol nor the F.B.I. lists A Wind Beaten Tree in their databases of stolen artworks.
