Hidden Van Gogh self-portrait discovered by X-ray


Recommended Posts

A previously unknown self-portrait by Vincent Van Gogh has been discovered hidden on the back of another painting.

Experts at the National Galleries of Scotland made the find when the canvas was X-rayed before an exhibition.

The hidden self-portrait was covered by layers of glue and cardboard on the back of an earlier work called Head of a Peasant Woman.

The gallery's senior conservator Lesley Stevenson said she felt "shock" to find the artist "looking out at us".
