At the Amsterdam Museum, named after Vincent van Gogh, for the first time, the public will see a pencil sketch with his signature on it, ВBC reports.
This painting is a sketch of a "Worn Out," also kept in the museum exposition. It depicts an old man sitting bent over a wooden chair with his head in his hands. The sketch, made in November 1882, at the beginning of the artist's career, was kept in a private collection in the Netherlands for more than 100 years and was known only to a narrow circle of art historians.
"We are proud to have the opportunity to share this early painting and its history with visitors," says the director of the museum Emilie Gordenker.
The owner of the sketch wished to remain anonymous. A sketch of a "Worn Out" will be on display until January 2, 2022.
