A master's work - A painting priced online at $10 by Goodwill is auctioned for $165,002
• Goodwill's masterpiece
Friday, October 20, 2006
Goodwill Industries of the Columbia Willamette hit the jackpot Thursday when what was originally thought to be cheap yard-sale art turned out to be the work of an American master.
The watercolor of a couple paddling a canoe along a placid stream went to bid last week on www.shopgoodwill.com. Goodwill workers described the painting as having 'Some mild wear to edges of board, would be lovely framed. Signature unreadable, dated '23.'
The asking price? $10."
