A drawing which has been attributed to Vincent van Gogh has gone on display in Amsterdam.

It is the first time the drawing has been shown in public.

The drawing is called, “Study for ‘Worn Out,’” and was completed in November 1882. It is part of a private collection.

The owner, who is remaining anonymous, asked the museum to determine if the unsigned drawing is by Van Gogh.

From the style, to the materials used — a thick carpenter’s pencil and coarse watercolor paper — it conforms to Van Gogh’s Hague drawings.

There are even traces of damage on the back of the image. This was due to the way Van Gogh used wads of starch to attach sheets of paper to drawing boards.

The study has been loaned to the museum and goes on show from Saturday through to January 2.
