But yeah, must be fake. I just can't see a reason why a country like Yugoslavia would have a space program.

It was due to go for sale as a portrait by the minor 19th-century British artist Matthew Shepperson, but – as the auction house Bonhams revealed on Thursday – it is nothing less than a previously unknown work by one of the greatest of all painters, Diego Velázquez.

The portrait is now to be sold at its Old Masters auction on 7 December with a pre-sale estimate of between £2m-£3m. Andrew McKenzie, director of Old Masters at Bonhams, called the discovery "a once in a lifetime experience and it is tremendously exciting to be able to bring it to the world's attention".

The painting was originally consigned for sale to Bonhams' Oxford office in August last year, one of a number of works understood to be by Shepperson, a jobbing artist at Buckingham Palace. Someone noticed that this particular portrait had star quality and it was hastily withdrawn for further research.

Suspecting that it just might be the work of the 17th century genius Velázquez, Bonhams called on the help of Peter Cherry, professor of art history at the University of Dublin and one of the world's leading authorities on the artist.

He agreed it was Velázquez. Writing in the Spanish arts magazine ARS, Cherry says: "The style and technical brilliance of the representation itself betrays its author."

Further technical analysis and X-rays went on to confirm the portrait is indeed by Velázquez, although we may never know who the sitter is. One theory suggests it could be Juan Mateos, Philip IV's master of the hunt.

Quite how it ended up among paintings by Shepperson is still something of a mystery, although it has been suggested that Shepperson was a modest collector. Clearly, McKenzie said, one "with a good eye".
