Cases of people finding treasures inside their houses are not new. In the most unexpected places of your home could be an item that can make you instantly wealthy!
Carl Sabatino was given a gift by his late aunt. When he was a kid, there was a painting in his aunt’s house that always caught his eye. He did not know that the artwork he fondly called, “the woman in the fuzzy hat” could bring him a fortune.
Prior to Sabatino’s Aunt, Jenny Verastro’s death, she told him “to look under the sewing machine.” Of course, the nephew had to check it and was surprised to see the 1950’s artwork wrapped in newspaper.
The man saw nothing special on the masterpiece until he saw something on the upper left corner of the canvas. On it was something he did not notice as a child-- Pablo Picasso’s signature.
Carl’s Uncle bought the painting in the streets of London for $30. Sabatino believes that it was indeed made by the legendary painter, Picasso, a recreation of “Woman With A Cape” which is kept in Cleveland Museum of Art.
Sabatino argued with an art expert regarding the authenticity of the painting. The nephew believes that Picasso may have made another version of the painting while practicing a new experimental technique. He had then brought it to an appraiser who agreed that it was legit.
The painting went through another testing in the hands of another art expert. It was revealed that the materials used matched with the ones used in Europe around 1930’s. Surprisingly, there was a partial thumbprint found on the masterpiece which could belong to the artist who made it.
If proven that the painting was indeed Picasso’s it can cost as much as $30 million
