Van Gogh notebook is real

In a damning statement, the museum claimed the contents of the "so called lost sketchbook" unveiled by French publishers were imitations and "could not be attributed to VincentVanGogh".

But the experts behind the discovery accused the museum of "jealousy", and told AFP that "it was not the first time theVanGoghMuseum has got it wrong".

The "lost" sketches come from the Dutch artist's time in the southern French city of Arles, when he produced some of his greatest paintings, including "Bedroom in Arles", "The Night Cafe" and "Still Life: Vase with Twelve Sunflowers".

Seven ofVanGogh's works are among the 30 most expensive paintings ever sold.

The museum's dramatic intervention came as the respected French publishing house Le Seuil was unveiling copies of the sketches to reporters in Paris.

"They are the guardians of the temple, it is inevitable" that they would say that, he told AFP, but several other respected experts were convinced they were real.

"They should be a bit more modest, and show a little respect rather than engage in a slanging match," he added.

According to Comment,VanGoghmade the ink drawings in the accounts book of the famous Cafe de la Gare where he stayed at various times between 1888 and 1890, towards the end of his tormented life.

They include portraits of his friends the artist Paul Gauguin and Pierre and Marie Ginoux, who owned the cafe.

VanGoghimmortalised Marie with whom he had a strong bond in one of his most famous paintings, "L'Arlesienne" (The Arles Woman).

"The Yellow House", whereVanGoghlater lived and rowed with Gauguin, was her former home.

It was after a fight with Gauguin on December 23, 1888, thatVanGoghcut off part of his ear.

CanadianVanGoghscholar Bogomila Welsh Ovcharov told reporters she "instinctively could not believe what she was looking at" when she first opened the ledger before slowly "realising what I was holding in my hands was without doubt a work of one of the greatest modern artists".

British expert Ronald Pickvance claimed the book was "the most revolutionary discovery in the history ofVanGogh" studies.

Le Seuil described the sketches which come from the most important period in the artist's life as "a very impressive ensemble" and insisted that "their authenticity is well established".

It said that the ledger was found in the archives of the Cafe de la Gare, fake hermes brown belt whosale and was owned by "a woman of modest means" living in the south of France.

It said that having seen high quality photographs of 56 of the 65 sketches, its experts concluded they were not byVanGogh.

"After examining a number of the original drawings in 2013, our experts did not change their minds. Their opinion. is that these album drawings are imitations ofVanGogh's drawings.

"The experts examined its style, technique and iconography, and among their conclusions were that hermes men belt replica it contains imitation hermes belt sale distinctive topographical errors and that its maker based it on discoloured drawings byVanGogh," the museum added.

Another clue it said debunked the notebook was that the drawings "are executed in brownish ink, and this type of ink has never been found inVanGogh's drawings from the years 1888 1890".

The most expensiveVanGoghpainting ever sold, the "Portrait of Dr Gachet", which dates from this period, sold for $82.5 Hermes belt replica france million (77 million euros) in New York in 1990. Experts estimate that it would go for more than $140 million today if it came to auction.
