MFA Boston: Missing Van Gogh Discovered

Boston's lovely Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) has been in possession of Vincent Van Gogh's painting "Ravine" for years. What curators at the Museum did not know until recently was that there was yet another Van Gogh painting underneath "Ravine". Working with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, preservation experts at both institutions noticed that there was a second painting underneath the paint surface. After close examination, it was revealed that this painting was in fact a draft of what later became the work "Wild Vegetation". This site provides information on this important discovery as well as a fascinating interactive tour of the works of Van Gogh held within the MFA's collections.
