It's a Van Gogh!

This painting in the famous Dutch Kroeller-Mueller museum has long been attributed to van Gogh, but it was never confirmed. In fact, in 2003 the Museum gave up and changed the attrubtion to "anonymous". Recently, special X-ray studies have shown that it is painted over a study of two wrestlers that van Gogh has described in his letters, implying that this is a van Gogh after all.
