Van Gogh’s self-portrait was found on the reverse side of the “Head of a Peasant Woman”

(ORDO NEWS) — A self-portrait of the legendary Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh was found on the back of his painting “Head of a Peasant Woman”. This was reported by the Daily Mail on July 14.

It is reported that experts conducted an X-ray examination of the canvas.

An X-ray taken ahead of a new exhibition in Edinburgh revealed a portrait (of the artist),” the statement said.

Experts believe that the artist’s self-portrait can be separated from his painting, but this will require complex restoration work.

It is indicated that visitors to the upcoming exhibition at the National Gallery of Scotland will be able to see the x-ray image of the portrait using a special device with illumination.

“What an incredible gift for Scotland, which will forever be under the care of the National Gallery,” – said the gallery’s professor Francis Fowl.
