Missing masterpiece found hidden inside another artwork at National Gallery of Victoria

One painting re-used as the canvas of another painting. It’s not unusual if you study art history. Many masterpieces have been painted over or are painted over other paintings. But this is interesting because of the fact that we know about the existence of the first painting because of a photograph (taken in the late 1800s).

Lost for more than a century, the work has now been discovered hiding in plain sight.
