New “lost” Van Gogh painting found after spending decades inside the attic of Norwegian collector’s home
A lost Van Gogh painting has been found after spending decades inside the attic of a Norwegian collector, who was told in the early 1900’s that it was a fake. The Vincent Van Gogh painting is the first full-size canvas discovered since 1928. “Sunset at Montmajour” depicts a “dry landscape of oak trees, bushes, and sky, painted with Van Gogh’s familiar thick brush strokes”. Investigators were able to identify the exact day it was painted because Van Gogh described it in a letter to his brother, Theo.
