THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Two draw­ings of a hill in Paris have been con­firmed as works by Vin­cent van Gogh and are go­ing on dis­play at a Dutch mu­seum.

The Van Gogh Mu­seum i n Am­s­ter­dam said that an 1886 draw­ing of Mont­martre owned by the Van Vlissin­gen Art Foun­da­tion was re­cently con­firmed as a work by the Dutch mas­ter based on ex­ten­sive re­search i nto its “sub­ject, style, tech­nique, ma­te­ri­als and prove­nance.”

Based on that re­search, a sim­i­lar draw­ing in the Van Gogh Mu­seum’s own col­lec­tion also has been con­firmed as an orig­i­nal by the Dutch artist most fa­mous for his vi­brant oil paint­ings.

Both draw­ings are part of an ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled “Im­pres­sion­ism & Be­yond. A Won­der­ful Jour­ney,” at the Singer Laren Mu­seum near Am­s­ter­dam.
