Antiques Roadshow European Style?
« on: 27/01/2012 03:28:57 »
A few years ago an art collector bought this unsigned portrait for $20,000.  Actually, I think purchased by a Canadian in New York.

The painting is now estimated to be worth $100,000,000

Not a bad profit for a scrap of artwork that could fit into a notebook!

There ain'ta no sanity clause, and there ain'ta no centrifugal force ćther.

I once bought a painting for 35 quid which is now worth bugger all!

   I had a good night out spending that 35 quid.   Ooops

What am I laughing for? Why you Removed due to No Name-calling week

Words can hurt, both spoken, and also in writing.
