A painting stolen 20 years ago was found lying,in trash along a street and now it could fetch up to $1 million at auction. What do you say about that?

This news proves the saying that there is gold in trash... the person who threw it away might not be aware that the painting is somewhat priceless... or the one who did the painting was popular... This person could be banging his head against the wall for making such a great mistake...

It is really a great windfall gain for guy who is picking the rags. It is a story of FROM RAGS TO RICHES. There are ever so many painters in Europe whose works of art has not seen the light of the day because of the stiff competition or lack of promotion. If any one finds such art works, it may also fetch millions. Good and interesting topic. Thanks and have a nice day.

Yes you are right many great painters can't show their arts because they do not have someone to promote their work, or do not have the money for adds.

How awesome to find such a thing. I don't know if I would realise it was important and valuable. I actually know of someone who found a valuable painting in a roadside trash pile.

it is great when something like that happens,but it may not be as easy as that,if this peice was stolen and reported to the police,the original owners can still go to court over posetion of it.so it could take some time before they can actually get any money.

You wonder what the original thief of that painting thought he was going to use it for. Most of those expensive paintings are few, rare and easily recognisable. So he obviously could not sell it, and was even tired of it. I think he might have thrown it away in frustration.

You've heard about "dumpster diving"? Makes you want to start a new hobby! LOL. I'm sure if I did, all I'd ever find would be trash. No treasures.
