A Renoir in Your Garage

This is the kind of story I like. From the ABC News website, someone bought a box of "unknown" artwork at a Virginia USA flea market.

Well, you can guess from the headline what happened. One of the pieces was a Pierre-Auguste Renoir painting, Paysage Bords de Seine, that had not surfaced since 1926!

It's going to be auctioned later this month for maybe $100,000US.

And that, my friends, is why I buy a lottery ticket every single week...
