Lucky Dutch.

I wish I has this kind of luck. Can you imagine stumbling upon a valuable peice like this newly unearthed Van Gogh?

The Associated Press reports this —

“A newly authenticated Van Gogh has gone on display 35 years after a discredited art collector bought it in Paris, convinced it was painted by the famed Dutch master but never able to prove it. Louis van Tilborgh, curator of research at the Van Gogh Museum inAmsterdam, said “Le Blute-Fin Mill” was painted in 1886. He said its large human figures are unusual for a Van Gogh landscape but it has his typically bright colors. It was bought in 1974 by Dirk Hannema, who was known as a brilliant museum curator but a fool when buying for his own collection. When he died in 1984 he claimed to have seven Vermeers, several Van Goghs and a few Rembrandts. He was right only about this one.

Lucky Dutch.
