A lawyer claims this painting in the National Gallery of Victoria is a Van Gogh that was looted by Nazis.
According to The ABC, the Swiss lawyer Olaf Ossmann says Head of Man once belonged to a rich industrialist from Berlin.
While Ossmann wants the painting returned to the man’s heirs, the gallery says tests have proven it is not actually a Van Gogh.
Ossmann says the painting was sold as one, and that it was worth $20 million. The artwork was purchased by a businessman, and changed hands twice before it was acquired by the gallery.
