Place of Van Gogh's final painting found in France

Jul 30, 2020 11:57 IST

The exact location of the final work by Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh has been pinpointed after being hidden in plain view among a tangle of roots next to a rural lane near Paris.  Experts believe it gives them new insights into the anguished painter's mental state on the day he is widely believed to have shot himself. A faded picture postcard featuring a man standing next to a bicycle on a back street of the village of Auvers-sur-Oise, 35 kilometers north of Paris, led a Dutch researcher to the location of Van Gogh's final work' "Tree Roots". The discovery, by Wouter van der Veen, the scientific director of the French-based Van Gogh Institute, provides a new glimpse of the artist in his final hours.
