The Van Gogh Museum has announced today that it has identified a major new painting by Vincent van Gogh. The work Sunset at Montmajour was painted in Arles in 1888, a period that is considered to be the height of the painter’s career.
The painting has been in the private collection of a family for several years, but the museum would not release any more information about the owners because of privacy concerns. Two years ago they brought it to the Van Gogh Museum to seek authentication. The museum recently concluded that the work was a van Gogh because the painting’s pigments correspond with those of van Gogh’s palette from Arles.
