‘Renoir painting’ snapped up at US flea market

A painting bought at a flea market in the US may turn out to be a rare bargain — a work by French master Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

It was bought by a woman as part of a box lot that included a doll and a plastic cow, and cost about $50.

She took it to a Virginia auction house where experts said they believed it was Renoir’s Paysage Bords de Seine — a river scene — from about 1879.

The auctioneers expect it to sell for up to $100,000 later this month — via redwolf.newsvine.com
