Housed at the Kroeller-Mueller Museum, magnetic imaging made it possible for art connoisseurs to validate its authenticity.
Other collections by the legendary Dutch artist Van Gogh, have commanded values in the millions. As was the case with “Portrait of Dr. Gachet” went for $82.5 million; “Sunflowers” sold for $39.9 million; and “Irises” was bought for $53.9 million. (Source: CNN.com).
