    In a stunning announcement, the Van Gogh Museum informed the world that they had discovered a previously unknown painting done by the famed artist. It has been over 100 years since the death of Vincent van Gogh and all of his works were long thought to be accounted for, but that wasn't the case. 'Sunset at Montmajour,' was painted back in 1888 and had previously thought to have been completed by Van Gogh, but was declared that it was not. After new analysis and recently resurfaced letters by the artist himself, the museum changed course and declared that the painting was indeed done by Vincent van Gogh.

    What does everyone think of the new discovery? Why do you think it took so long to figure out that it was done by van Gogh?

    I wonder if this should be a topic for this site. I guess it concerns "money" only; depending on who owns it. I must be a very rich man by now, because each time we get a thunderstorm my TV picture changes into a van Gogh. ( for at least 15 minutes of fame!!)
