According to the newspaper, the painting has found a British journalist and art historian Bendor Grosvenor in the collection of the House-Museum of Pollock in Glasgow.
Previously it was thought that the painting was only a copy of the original portrait of the Duke of Buckingham George Villers painted by Rubens in the 17th century. Conducted by Grosvenor research has shown that the proprietary techniques of Rubens were hidden under layers of dirt and later applied paint.
“We are pleased to provide the opportunity for as many people to see the masterpiece of Rubens”, — quotes the edition of the representative of the Foundation of the museums of Glasgow David MacDonald.
It is reported that the authenticity of the picture is also confirmed by the experts of the Museum “House of Rubens” in Belgium. The cost of painting, according to the Museum, can be tens of millions of pounds.
