New painting by Vincent van Gogh discovered!

//13/09/27
The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam has discovered a new painting by Vincent van Gogh: Sunset at Montmajour (1888). Director Axel Rüger commented that “A discovery of this magnitude has never before occurred in the history of the Van Gogh Museum.”
This discovery is even more exceptional because it is a large painting from a period that is considered by many to be the culmination of Van Gogh’s artistic achievement. During this time he also painted world-famous works, such as Sunflowers, The yellow house and The bedroom. Van Gogh’s work Vase with Twelve Sunflowers, which features in ByME Arts & Crafts 2, was also painted in 1888.
Sunset at Montmajour will be shown from 24 September in the exhibition Van Gogh at work.
