TRUTH !!
The painting measures 16 1/4 inches by 13 inches and is signed only with a "V" in the lower left corner.
It is an oil-on-canvas still life of flowers in a vase and has been authenticated by experts at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, which has a large collection of Van Gogh paintings and drawings, Hindman said.
The couple said they inherited the painting, believed to have been completed several years before the artist's suicide in 1890, from a relative who emigrated from Switzerland in the 1940s.

The couple got the painting from Gebhard Adolf Guyer, a wealthy Swiss banker who collected art between 1910 and 1930 but never knew it was a Van Gogh.
