Renoir Found at Flea Market
A woman from Virginia may have unwittingly scored an original painting by Pierre-August Renoir, when she bought a US$7 box lot at a flea market. According to The Huffington Post, the woman was uninterested in the actual painting with a frame bearing the name “RENOIR,” and she was about to throw it away; she then got the work appraised on a whim.
Potomack Co. auction house now believes the landscape to be Renoir’s Paysage Bords de Seine, which is valued between US$75,000 and US$100,000. The piece is set to be auctioned off on September 29, 2012. 

Flea markets, garage sales, and thrift stores are always turning up the BEST stuff!
