Unknown 'Van Gogh' found in Zagreb museum cellar





VIENNA -- A previously unknown work by Vincent Van Gogh is believed to have been discovered in the cellar of a museum in Croatia.

The unnamed oil on canvas painting, showing five women and a little girl from Scheweningen in the Netherlands in a forest, is signed Vincent in one corner.

It was found by experts looking through the uncatalogued collection that has been stored at the Mimara Museum in the Croatian capital Zagreb for the past two decades.

Museum spokesman Darko Glavan said Dutch art expert John Sillevis had confirmed the painting was an authentic work by Vincent Van Gogh probably painted in 1882.

Mr Glavan said the museum was still carrying out tests on the painting before making an official announcement.
