A painting recently identified as an original Van Gogh had been kept in a Norwegian attic for years, the Van Gogh Museum has revealed.
At an unveiling of the work at the museum in Amsterdam, it was explained the painting was the the first full-size canvas by the Dutch master discovered since 1928.
Museum director Axel Rueger described the discovery as a "once in a lifetime experience". The painting belongs to an unidentified private collector and will be on display at the museum from September 24.
The location of the painting - Sunset at Montmajor - has been identified as a landscape not far from Arles in the south of France.
Researchers from the Van Gogh Museum believe the subject for the painting is a scene near the Montmajour hill, with the ruin of the abbey with the same name.
Two letters from the artist, written in the summer of 1888, have also been found to refer to the painting, which will be displayed at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam from September 24.
Van Gogh Museum director Axel Ruger explained the newly-discovered painting, Sunset at Montmajor, is understood to have been painted at the time Van Gogh produced the world-famous paintings Sunflowers and The Bedroom.
He said: "A discovery of this magnitude has never before occurred in the history of the Van Gogh Museum. It is already a rarity that a new painting can be added to Van Gogh's oeuvre.
"But what makes this even more exceptional is that this is a transition work in his oeuvre, and moreover, a large painting from a period that is considered by many to be the culmination of his artistic achievement, his period in Arles in the south of France.
"During this time he also painted world-famous works, such as Sunflowers, The yellow house and The Bedroom."
Researchers at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam concluded the painting Sunset at Montmajor as an original Van Gogh after researching the style, technique, the paint used and letters written by Van Gogh at the time.
A new Van Gogh painting has been discovered by researchers in Amsterdam. Sunset at Montmajor, painted in 1888, has been identified as the work of Vincent Van Gogh by staff at the Van Gogh Museum.
A painting bought for just £30 at an auction has been valued at £250,000 after experts discovered that it was an original by John Constable, The Times reports (£).
Robin Darvell, who was recently diagnosed with cancer, bought the postcard-sized painting as part of a "job lot" in auction and gave it to his son while clearing the family home.
His son Rob told the newspaper: "My dad bought it ten to 15 years ago. He likes to think of himself as a bit of a Lovejoy (the antiques expert from the 1980s television comedy drama) and had a shop where he used to sell First World War memorabilia.
“They have job lots, bits and pieces that haven’t sold or that no one wants. He saw this small painting and liked it, turned it over and saw the name J Constable on the back of the frame.”
Rob Darvell, 45, approached TV art expert Curtis Dowling for an appraisal over six months ago and after thorough examinations, the painting was confirmed as a Constable original.
“Dad had kept it for years - he had this Del Boy dream. He thought it might be [a Constable] but never got it looked into. He gave it to me on the condition that I got it researched,” Rob added.

South African-born Susanne du Toit won the £30,000 BP Portrait Award for a portrait in oils of her son Pieter.
The 57-year-old, who lives in Crowthorne, Berkshire, said the picture reflected her belief that the body provides "as much expression as the face".
She added: "Having said that, the averted gaze of this portrait, which was his choice, struck me as characteristic of his reflective character, and became intensely engaging."
Ms du Toit, whose work will go on show at the National Portrait Gallery in central London, also wins a commission from the gallery's trustees worth £5,000.
