New Van Gogh Painting Discovered In Attic

CBS News: The Van Gogh Museum says it has identified a long-lost Vincent Van Gogh painting that spent years in a Norwegian attic because it was thought not to be authentic. It is the first full-size canvas by the Dutch master discovered since 1928.

He said the painting was done “on a stony heath where small twisted oaks grow.” Museum experts said the painting was authenticated by Van Gogh’s letters, the style and the physical materials used, and they had traced its history.Museum director Axel Rueger described the discovery as a “once-in-a-lifetime experience” at an unveiling ceremony.
