Van Gogh's Hidden Portrait Patch of Grass Painting

X-rays reveal - The woman beneath Van Gogh’s Patch of Grass painting.

A Vincent van Gogh portrait of a peasant woman that was painted over by the artist has been revealed in extraordinary detail through use of an x-ray technique that has never before been applied to a painting.

Van Gogh often painted over his earlier works; experts estimate that about a third of his early pictures conceal other compositions.

Patch of Grass was completed in Paris in 1887 and is owned by the Kroller-Muller museum in the Netherlands. [from guardian]
