ABSTRACT
The article reports on a controversy surrounding a painting by renowned artist Vincent Van Gogh. Gogh's painting, Head of a Man, is being denounced by some European critics as fake. The painting was securely attributed to Van Gogh long before its acquisition by the National Gallery of Victoria. It is believed that the masterpiece took its form during 1886-87. Van Gogh, through this painting, has tried to find a new way to express himself.
