Van Gogh painting not seen in decades on view in Washington

A Van Gogh work of art that hasn't been seen by the public in four decades is now on display at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. The Dutch master's sweeping "Green Wheat Fields, Auvers," is believed to have been painted in France, just weeks before Van Gogh's suicide in 1890. It belonged to Van Gogh's brother, Theo, before being sold to a German collector whose son sold it to Paul Mellon in 1955. It remained in the Mellon's Virginia home, until now. The public last saw it during an exhibition devoted to works owned by the Mellon family in 1966.
