Van Gogh Controversy Close To Resolution

The controversy over the authenticity of a painting attributed to Van Gogh in Australia’s National Gallery of Victoria hasn’t swayed the confidence of the gallery’s director. “The portrait, estimated to be worth $20 million, is included in all catalogues listing the artist’s works, and was part of a US exhibition in 2000 that was seen by more than 1 million people without complaint. But its authenticity was questioned by some British critics when it went on show in August at Scotland’s Dean Gallery as part of the Edinburgh Festival.” The painting is now being carefully scrutinized by experts to determine the truth.
