Vincent van Gogh's street painting was shown on a street in Paris for the first time, having been for more than a hundred years behind the scenes.
The painting "A Scene from a Street in the Quarter of Montmartre" has remained a treasure in the possessions of a French family for most of the time, ever since Gogh painted it in 1887.
Auction house Sotheby's estimated the painting at a price of up to eight million euros when sold at auction next month.
The painting is one of a series of works that Van Gogh launched during his stay with his brother Theo in 1886 and 1887, a short distance from the street shown in the painting.
The painting will be exhibited at Sotheby's in Paris, Amsterdam and Hong Kong before being sold on March 25th.
