A Dutch Museum Called van Gogh’s Painting, Found by an Art Collector a Fake

A Dutch museum denied a painting of Van Gogh which was considered long-lost. The piece was discovered by an art collector but called a fake. And now, the man from New York filed a lawsuit to fight the determination.

Stuart Pivar, who is the co-founder of the New York Academy of Art, found the artist’s work in March during an auction. And he believes the painting matches the artist’s Auvers which Vincent van Gogh painted in 1890.

The 300 million dollars lawsuit says that the 90-year-old man has every reason to consider the work of art was painted specifically by Vincent van Gogh. The documents were sent to the Manhattan Supreme Court on Tuesday.

On August 13, Van Gogh Museum located in Amsterdam city told Pivar that the piece is absolutely false. However, the man claims that such a quick decision was made without even looking at the painting because the chemistry scientist sent the electronic photographs via mail.

The collector then repeatedly asked to estimate the work of art in person but the museum representatives rejected his multiple offers explaining that the general tone and nature in no way resembles a true van Gogh.

Interestingly, if the painting was estimated properly, it would be one of the artist’s largest paintings with a market value of 300,000,000 dollars.
