A woman cleaning her house in England noticed the painting she bought at the flea market 6 years ago. Wondering the value of the painting, which has been sitting idle for years, the woman took it to an art conservatory.
The painting, which was bought from the flea market for $ 4, was produced by the American painter Bewell Convers Wyeth.
According to the listing of the Bonhams Skinner auction house, the painting, one of four works created for the 1939 novel “Ramona” by Helen Hunt Jackson, was valued at an estimated $150,000 to $250,000.
The work will be put up for auction on September 19.
