A few years ago my husband’s grandfather died. He had collected quite a bit in his lifetime, and the family decided to auction it all off in an attempt to clear out the house. I had never really been to an auction before, and I was quite convinced I’d find nothing to interest me. That was until we came to the master bedroom. It was one of the last rooms with items for auction, and the moment I walked in I saw the painting and knew I’d fight to own it.
