A lost Jackson Pollock painting worth millions is found in a garage; up for auction.
J. Levine’s Auction and Appraisal house in Scottsdale is auctioning off an authentic lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock. For the past 18 months the house has been authenticating the art and now it’s expected to sell for over $15 million dollars. What’s most impressive is how the piece wound up sitting in an Arizonan’s garage for more than twenty years.
Originally, this piece, along with several other famous artwork belonged to Jenifer Gordon. She lived in New York and was a good friend to a very influential mid-20th-century art critic, Clement Greenburg. Greenburg played a role in helping influence the careers of numerous artists such as Jackson Pollock. When she died, her half-brother took on some of her assets including these paintings back to his home in Sun City.

The auction is Tuesday, June 20th starting at 11 a.m. There will be a preview on Monday, June 19, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. It’s free to attend! All you have to do is RSVP online here.
