Carl Sabatino was devastated after losing his beloved aunt. While on her deathbed, she told him to look inside the old sewing machine table that was sitting in her living room.
After she had passed, he did just that.
He bent down to look under the table when a painting fell out.
This was no ordinary painting by his aunt. It was a Picasso. Carl’s uncle had purchased it during WWI in London for only $30.
“My brother and I called it the lady with the fuzzy hat,” Carl said.
The painting, after appraisal by an expert, was estimated to be real and worth 35 million. It also contains Picasso’s actual thumbprint.
