Two stolen paintings by the French artists Paul Gauguin and Pierre Bonnard hung on an Italian factory worker’s kitchen wall for almost 40 years – un/fortunately without his knowing that they are probably more valuable than the whole factory. The Gauguin painting, titled “Fruits sur une Table ou Nature au Petit Chien” i.e. “Fruits on a Table or Still Life with a Small Dog”, (painted in 1889) are probably worth between 10 million and 30 million euros. My guess for the actual value of the fruit is less than a couple of euros unless they’re organic.
