Netherlands displays Van Gogh sketch after a century

( MENAFN ) Netherlands has unveiled a sketch which the identity of its maker was unknown until recently when the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh was revealed to be its creator.

"The Hill of Montmartre with Quarries" has been sketched in 1886, a little while after the painter moved to Paris. It then remained still in a private collection for nearly a century.

Following a comprehensive confirmation, the sketch was put on display at the Singer Laren museum in Netherlands.

Senior researcher for the Amsterdam-based Van Gogh Museum Teio Meedendorp said "such a discovery is always great. It's really exceptional and does not often happen."
