the Book is called “Vincent van Gogh, Arles mist: was found a notebook,” written by art critic Bogomila Welsh-Ovcharov, which specializiruetsya on the artist.
the book asserts that the drawings were made in the Ledger of the hotel in the French Arles, where van Gogh lived in 1888.
Director of the van Gogh Museum Axel rüger said that informed the book publisher about the opinion of the Museum about the authenticity of the pictures.
In conversation with the correspondent Bi-bi-si, Ruger said, “It was her position [of the author]. She also has experience and knowledge. We’ll have to stay at their opinions”.
Bogomila Welsh-Ovcharov was involved in organizing several exhibitions of van Gogh, including exhibition at the Orsay Museum in Paris.
researchers from the van Gogh Museum, which are considered the best experts in the world on the artist, came to the conclusion that the style of the figures is not typical of his works of this period, and the figures are monotonous and primitive.
