The face of Vincent Van Gogh emerges from the past.

文森·梵谷的面容歷經歲月,重見天日。

The portrait is hidden on the back of a painting held in Edinburgh.

這幅肖像畫藏在現存於愛丁堡的一幅畫作的背面。

It was discovered by X-ray at the National Galleries of Scotland concealed by glue and cardboard on the back of Head of a Peasant Woman.

這幅肖像畫是在蘇格蘭國立美術館用 X射線掃描後發現的,它被膠水和硬紙板遮擋住了,藏在《農婦頭像》畫布的背面。

Lesley Stevenson, Senior Conservator
“What a major discovery! We’re all absolutely thrilled. It’s great for the National Galleries and for Scotland as a whole. A self-portrait gives us an insight into how the artist saw himself. It’s quite a particular perspective and, of course, Van Gogh needs no introduction.”

萊斯利·史蒂文森       資深藝術品保護員
“這真是一項重大發現!我們都非常高興,這個發現對於國立美術館乃至整個蘇格蘭來說,都是好事,自畫像可以讓我們深入瞭解這位藝術家是怎樣看待自己的,這是認識梵谷的一個獨特視角,當然,文森·梵谷這個名字家喻戶曉。”

Work will now get under way to try to recover the amazing find.

美術館現已展開修復工作,以試圖重現這一驚人發現的原貌。
