(CNN) — A new painting by the Dutch master Vincent van Gogh has been discovered, the museum that showcases his work in Amsterdam said Monday.

“A discovery of this magnitude has never before occurred in the history of the Van Gogh Museum,” the museum’s director, Axel Ruger, said in a statement.

Ruger said the museum attributed the painting, entitled “Sunset at Montmajour,” to Van Gogh after “extensive research into style, technique, paint, canvas, the depiction, Van Gogh’s letters and the provenance.”
