A Van Gogh painting that has not been seen in public in a century goes up for auction

Paris, Feb 24 (EFE) .- A painting by Vincent Van Gogh that has not been seen in public for a century will be auctioned in March with an estimated sale price of between 5 and 8 million euros (between just over 6 and 9, 7 million dollars), announced this Wednesday the houses Sotheby’s and Mirabaud Mercier.

The work “Street Scene in Montmartre (Alley of the Two Brothers and the Pepper Mill)” was painted in 1887 during Van Gogh’s period in Paris, and shows a couple walking on the Parisian hill of Montmartre.

This painting, which has been in a private French collection for a century and has not been seen in public since, will be the star of the Impressionist art auction that both houses will hold in Paris on March 25.
