New Van Gogh identified
Wednesday 24 February 2010
A painting of the Blute-Fin windmill in Monmartre, Paris which hangs in a Zwolle museum is the work of Vincent van Gogh, art experts have decided.
The painting was bought by museum director and collector Dirk Hannema from a Paris art dealer in 1975 for 6,500 francs (less than €1,000).
Hannema left the painting, dating from 1886, to the Museum de Fundatie he founded in Zwolle in his will.
