    Aunt's painting was a 26m Van Gogh

    An Italian man given a painting by his aunt 50 years ago has reportedly found out it's a 26 million Van Gogh masterpiece.

    The man, from Milan, who has spoken to media on condition that his identity is kept secret, said he only found out he had Van Gogh when a friend who is an art expert came round for dinner.

    The friend saw the painting hanging on the wall and immediately realised it was a Van Gogh.

    But the man has yet to reveal what the painting is other than to say it is "a painting of rural life".

    Italian daily newspaper Il Giorno has said it will publish an exclusive photo of the painting this week.
