Van Gogh Landscape To Be Unveiled

A landscape by Vincent van Gogh — Le Moulin d’Alphonse Daudet à Fontvieille — is to be exhibited for the first time in more than 100 years following the discovery of crucial evidence that firmly traces back its history directly to the artist. The significance of two handwritten numbers scribbled almost imperceptibly on the back had been overlooked until now. They have been found to correspond precisely with those on two separate lists of Van Gogh’s works drawn up by Johanna, wife of the artist’s brother, Theo. The landscape will be unveiled at TEFAF Maastricht, arguably the world’s most prestigious art fair, opening on Friday.
