+ 34125 Notes

The painting is unsigned, and had been previously been dismissed by the Van Gogh Museum in the 1990s. With the development of improved investigative techniques a two-year investigation was launched to determine the painting’s authenticity, eventually determining it as a true Van Gogh in September 2013. It was discovered that the painting was described in a letter to Theo, stating he had painted it the previous day, 4 July 1888.

It is the first full-size painting by Van Gogh to be discovered since 1928
