A man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing two paintings, one by Vincent van Gogh and one by Frans Hals, from museums in the Netherlands, police said.

Van Gogh's "The Parsonage Garden at Nuenen in Spring" was taken from The Singer Laren museum in the town of Laren, just outside Amsterdam, in March last year during an overnight raid.

In August, "Two laughing boys" by Dutch Golden Age master Hals was stolen from the Hofje van mevrouw Aerden in Leerdam, police said.

The painting has been stolen twice before -- once from the same museum in 2011, before being recovered by police.

Police said Tuesday that a 58-year-old man from Baarn was arrested early in the morning on suspicion of stealing the paintings.

"The Parsonage Garden at Nuenen in Spring" was created in the town of Nuenen, where Van Gogh stayed with his parents between 1883 and 1885.
