9. A van Gogh painting
An unknown painting by van Gogh called Sunset at Montmajour had been sitting around in a Norwegian collector’s attic for many years. The reason? In 1908, a guest told him it was a fake. The host got upset and took the painting down,
forgetting all about it. 100 years after the collector’s death, the new owner of his house found the picture and took it to experts, finding out it was a priceless original by van Gogh himself.
