The verdict is in: A painting at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of art in Hartford is in fact an original by Vincent Van Gogh.
The oil painting is called “Vase with Poppies.”
It has been part of the Wadsworth collection since 1957.
It had been x-rayed, and examined and was finally authenticated by the Van Gogh Museum in Holland.
The Wadsworth is now home to two original Van Gogh’s. The other is a Van Gogh self portrait.
Vase with Poppies will be back at the Wadsworth at the end of April.
