"Hey Louie, I know where your painting is. Get a lawyer"
Long (and I mean long) story in the Hartford Courant this weekend about a painting bought for $3 at a tag sale that turned out, 30 years later, to be a John Singer Sargent worth more than $6 million. Mental illness, lawsuits, use of the word "stugots," it's all there. The Cliff Notes version is here. You can see the painting here.
