A drawing of a quarry in Paris is a real Van Gogh, experts have determined. Thanks to the discovery, a second drawing can also be attributed to the Brabant master. The work was presented this morning in the Singer Museum in Laren.
The drawing was made in 1886, the year that Van Gogh studied at the academy in Antwerp for some time. It is not a real preliminary study, but the drawing is strongly reminiscent of his oil painting The Hill of Montmartre. …
