The seller was expecting to sell the painting (which was given to her grandmother as a gift) for a few thousand dollars but ended up with $600,000 thats approx £307,000 WOW Amazing :w00t: .

It was also auctioned on ebay live auction. The bid closed at $565,000 (approx £290,000) but since it was a live auction, the in house bid reached $600,000.

I managed to track down where on ebay it was auctioned:

Right guys and gals search your lofts for some old paintings, you never know what it will fetch.

Happy searching
