MELBOURNE, Australia - 08/03/2007 - A Van Gogh painting now in the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne has been found to be a fake! The Van Gogh painting titled "Head of a Man" had an estimated value of $21.4 million before the change in attribution.

Tests on the Van Gogh painting were performed by art experts at the van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. The Van Gogh painting has been in the gallery's collection since 1940. Naturally, the National Gallery of Victoria is disappointed that this van Gogh painting is not a real van Gogh.
