“A previously unknown portrait of a woman by Vincent van Gogh has been revealed in a high-tech look beneath another of his paintings, it was announced today.

“Scientists used a new technique to peer beneath the paint of van Gogh’s ‘Patch of Grass.’ Already it was known there was something there, likely a portrait of some sort. Van Gogh was known to paint over his work, perhaps as much as a third of the time.”
