New York art collector Stuart Pivar says that he has rediscovered a long-lost Vincent van Gogh masterpiece titled "Auvers, 1890" at an auction. The painting is being sent to the van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam because they have requested to see it and authenticate it. The painting, which is signed on the back as "Vincent" and dated 1890, is a 36" by 36" square panorama of the valley of Auvers-sur-Oise, showing its mosaic of wheat fields bisected by a railway line. The painting also bears the label of art collector Jonas Netter. If authenticated, the work would be van Gogh's largest painting and his only painting in a square format.
