Van Gogh Art Found in Cellar

12 Apr 2007


Art Fortune | Art Discoveries


A previously unknown work by Vincent Van Gogh is believed to have been discovered in the cellar of a museum in Croatia.

The unnamed oil on canvas painting, showing five women and a little girl from Scheweningen in the Netherlands in a forest, is signed Vincent in one corner.


It was found by experts looking through the uncatalogued collection that has been stored at the Mimara Museum in the Croatian capital Zagreb for the past two decades.


Museum spokesman Darko Glavan said Dutch art expert John Sillevis had confirmed the painting was an authentic work by Vincent Van Gogh probably painted in 1882.


Mr Glavan said the museum was still carrying out tests on the painting before making an official announcement.


The Mimara Museum was set up to display the works collected by Croatian art lover Ivan Topic Mimara, who was born in 1898 and died in 1987.

He lived at various times in Paris, Berlin, Munich and Salzburg as well as his native Zagreb, and was said to have been friends with many of the most influential art experts of his time. The museum has so far only itemised 1,000 of the items in the 3,000 strong collection.
