New Van Gogh Painting Discovered

New Van Gogh Painting Discovered

A long-lost painting by Vincent van Gogh has been re-discovered, it was announced this week. “Sunset Over Montmajour” is believed to have been completed in 1888, two years before the artist’s death, “a period considered by many to be the culmination of his artistic achievement,” according to Axel Ruger, Director of the Van Gogh Museum.

The painting, stored for years in a Norwegian attic, was long believed to be a fake, perhaps because, while it’s a genuine van Gogh, it’s not a very good van Gogh. Still, it’s worth a fortune.
