Woman Found Priceless Painting In Her Own Kitchen

Cenni di Pepo

Can you imagine owning a multi-million dollar treasure in your home without even knowing that?
Well, that luck, or an accident, an older woman had. An unnamed lady from France had a rare Renaissance painting in her possession, more than seven hundred years old. Hanged neatly in the hallway leading to her kitchen, the painting was almost revealed, when a woman asked the auctioneer to inspect her house before she would move out.

To her surprise, the painting, which was almost torn and covered with dust, was actually the work of Cenni di Pepo, also known as Cimabue – a thirteenth-century Florentine painter known as Giotto’s mentor.
The painting is the work of a larger piece of art, that is, a companion piece from the Frick collection. The exciting masterpiece measures 8 x 10 inches, and is in very good condition, despite the fact that nobody cared for or maintained it.
The painting will go on sale next week, and is believed to reach between $4.4 million and $6.6 million.
