"Art experts said on Monday that the painting, which depicts a crowd mocking Christ and was found during a house clearance in June in the French town of Compiegne, was actually a piece called Christ Mocked, by the great 13th-century Florentine painter Cimabue".
Legend has it that Cimabue "found" Giotto.
Hey Tinear, I am not giving up-even though a three dollar Chinese vase/jar was found at a garage sale a 100 miles from house and was sold for millions. Or the Jackson Pollock found accidentally house that was being sold worth 30 mill in Az. But I would settle for Lionel train set.
Well at least my memory is not completely faulty, but obviously faulty enough . Cheers.
HA! There are three, thankfully, at the Frick NYC and four at the MET in NYC. Those raw sienna and umbra palate colors may have tempted the deranged to place near the fire place hoping to extract the gold leaf.They are gorgeous and inspiring paintings.
I have friends who hunt the flea markets in NYC-One found a W. Blake water color on thick linen and thought he made the killing of lifetime(he was a school teacher with 3 alimony's and went back to smoking 2 packs of cigs a day but it took him a year to take it to Christie's-so firm was his delusion.Still believes it.
