A flea market treasure!

11 Sep

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Landscape on the Banks of the Seine, 1879.

It always surprises and delights me to see that artworks from famous artists continue to be discovered in unexpected places. The most recent story is that of a Renoir painting bought at a West Virginia flea market and estimated to fetch between 75,ooo$ and 100,000$ at auction. The story is worth reading at The Washington Post.
