Art At Your Local Goodwill

EASTON, Md., June 26 (UPI) -- Employees of a Goodwill store in Maryland said they were shocked to find out a donated painting was by Impressionist Edouard-Leon Cortes and worth $40,600.

The painting, left at the Goodwill in Easton, Md., in March, was sold at Sotheby's auction house in New York for $40,600, the Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday.

One of those Antiques Roadshow moments. When I watch the Brit version of the show, I'm always hoping that one of the hopeful fans, when asked where (s)he found a particular something, will say 'ee, Ah stole it!
