New Van Gogh Drawing Is Discovered

An unknown Van Gogh drawing of a Paris scene has been discovered, leading to a second work being accepted as authentic. The Hill of Montmartre with Stone Quarry was acquired in 2014 by the Van Vlissingen Art Foundation, which then showed the work to specialists at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. After research into the subject, style, technique, materials and provenance, they concluded that it is indeed by the artist. Discoveries of unknown Van Goghs are rare, perhaps once a decade.
