The family fortune was hanging in the kitchen

Irving, Texas. October 1, 2019

An elderly woman in a town near Paris hit the jackpot when she decided to have what she thought was an old religious icon hanging in her kitchen appraised, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. It turned out that the painting, which had been in the family for some time, was in fact an exceptionally valuable painting, known as The Mocking of Christ, by the 13th century Florentine artist Cenni di Pepo who is considered by experts to be “the father of Western painting.” It’ll be put up for auction soon and it’s expected to fetch as much as $6 million.
