'Hidden' Van Gogh painting revealed

Its known that Van Gogh reused old paintings. With x-rays they can see them but always a bit vague as can be seen here on the Van Gogh Museum site. Today they published a recently discovered/uncovered one. But now its not made visible by x-ray but with a technique based on *synchrotron radiation. With that technique also colour can be brought to light. I'm looking forward to more new discoveries.

This is the painting:

“One's own self is well hidden from one's own self; of all mines of treasure, one's own is the last to be dug up.”

A bit different: "When someone is always hiding for the others one will at last not be able to find oneself back"

Maurice Maeterlinck
