The Hague, Sep 9 (EFE).- "Sunset at Montmajour," an 1888 landscape painting, has been identified as an original work by Dutch master Vincent van Gogh after two years of research, the Van Gogh Museum said Monday.
The painting, which was found in a private collection, dates from the period when Van Gogh (1853-1890) painted his well-known flower scenes.
"A discovery of this magnitude has never before occurred in the history of the Van Gogh Museum. It is already a rarity that a new painting can be added to Van Gogh's oeuvre," museum director Axel Ruger said.
