Van Gogh Museum director Axel Rueger, left, and senior researcher Louis van Tilborgh, right, unveil ‘Sunset at Montmajour,’ a long-lost painting by Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh. The discovery is the first full-size canvas that has been found since 1928. The painting sat in a Norwegian industrialist’s attic for six decades after he was told it was a fake. Experts at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam authenticated the 1888 landscape with the help of Vincent Van Gogh’s letters, chemical analysis of the pigments and X-rays of the canvas.
