After nine years of research, scientists used a technique called Macro Scanning X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry and discovered that this painting is a Van Gogh. The painting, Still life with roses and field flowers has a very interesting story, because Van Gogh actually painted over one of his previous paintings to create it.
And it is quite an unusual Van Gogh. First, the size is weird, too large for the Dutch author: 39.3 x 31.4 inches (100 x 80 centimeters). His flowers were never as big during his Parisian period, when this painting was created. Also, experts thought the piece was too exuberant for the post-impressionist master.
