(CNN) -- More than 120 years after Vincent van Gogh's death, a new painting by the Dutch master has come to light.
The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, which holds the largest collection of the artist's work, announced Monday the discovery of the newly identified painting, a landscape titled "Sunset at Montmajour."
"A discovery of this magnitude has never before occurred in the history of the Van Gogh Museum," the museum's director, Axel Ruger, said in a statement.
Van Gogh is believed to have completed the relatively large painting in 1888, two years before his death and during "a period that is considered by many to be the culmination of his artistic achievement," Ruger said.

No opinion, except maybe, what?

@edgarblythe,
I was at the Van Gogh Museum many years ago.

I like the new painting. It looks better to me close up. I like seeing the brush strokes.

Apparently, it was found in a garage sale and dismissed on A2K as a fake!

@Lordyaswas,
It could be just another fake van Gogh a painting by the infamous Leonhard Wacker, brother of the van Gogh scammer/art dealer, Otto Wacker.
I love when the " art experts" have to qear thir opinions.

That means the painting is authentic as Dr. Who really did visit Van Gogh before he passed away as documented in season five of the nonfiction PBS reality series of his name sake.
