Doctor Who thing: is that the TARDIS in the new Van Gogh, Sunset at Montmajour?

So, you remember how the Doctor hung out with Vincent Van Gogh, right?

Have you heard about the new Van Gogh painting that was just discovered? From CNN:

More than 120 years after Vincent van Gogh’s death, a new painting by the Dutch master has come to light.

The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, which holds the largest collection of the artist’s work, announced Monday the discovery of the newly identified painting, a landscape titled “Sunset at Montmajour.”

Van Gogh is believed to have completed the relatively large painting in 1888, two years before his death and during “a period that is considered by many to be the culmination of his artistic achievement,” Ruger said.

In its statement, the Van Gogh Museum didn’t divulge the full story behind the discovery of “Sunset at Montmajour,” saying it would be published in the October edition of The Burlington Magazine, a fine art publication, and at the museum.

Here’s the painting:


And what’s that up in the top left corner? Is it a building? Or could it be something else? @KeithAllGamer suggests:

Unveiled Van Gogh painting looks like it has the TARDIS in it…



Sure, it could be many different things. But we know what it is…

    That’s totally a hastily disguised picture of the TARDIS. That’s why the perspective on the “building” is so wonky; he painted the side of it in at the last minute when the Doctor asked him to make the TARDIS less obvious.
