An exceptionally rare painting by Vincent Van Gogh is expected to draw a fortune at auction.

Sotheby's will be accepting bids on "Still Life, Vase With Daisies and Poppies" next month.

It's expected to sell for between $30 million and $50 million.

Van Gogh completed the painting in 1890 at the home of his physician.

It was one of the few paintings the artist managed to sell during his lifetime.
