A lady found a painting by Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo in the trash while on a walk in NYC. The painting had been stolen over 20 years ago. She didn't know who did the painting, but saw that it had a certain power, so she rescued it. Now it is being sold at auction for $1,000,000.
I keep waiting for the day when I find some lost masterpiece like that either in the trash or at a yard sale!
