The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam reported that they had discovered a Van Gogh painting in a norwegian attic. The painting, named “Sunsets at Montmajour”, was made on July 4, 1888 and is the first full sized canvas painting discovered since 1928. The painting is exactly 93.3×73.3 cm.(36.7×28.9 in.). It is believed that it was made near Arles, France, which is where Vincent Van Gogh was living at the time. Researcher Meedendorp said it belongs “to a special group of experimental works that Van Gogh at times esteemed of lesser value than we tend to nowadays.”
