A painting by Vincent Van Gogh of Montmartre which has been in a family collection for a century is coming up for sale next month at Sotheby's. The work, painted in 1887, shows one of the old windmills that used to decorate this once rural part of Paris. It has not been seen in public since it was acquired in 1920.

The painting will be sold next month with an estimate of €5m - €8m.
