A new Vincent Van Gogh painting was discovered after years of being stored in an attic. The painting was not signed by Van Gogh but was described in a letter to Van Gogh's brother Theo in July of 1888 just a day after he painted it. Here it is:

People have taken to twitter to announce the new painting and also remind everyone that Van Gogh cut his ear off.
