'New' Van Gogh

A rediscovered painting of a windmill by Vincent Van Gogh - Le Blute-fin Mill (1886) - has gone on show at the Museum de Fundatie in Zwolle. Where? Zwolle is a municipality and also the capital city of the province of Overijssel, Netherlands, if you must know. Please yourselves. This painting looks nothing like a Van Gogh to me, but it has been authenticated by experts at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Wishful thinking? If not, it looks as though the guy could actually paint in an amateurish sort of way before he went all expressionistic.
