Stolen Gauguin Shows up in Sicilian Kitchen

Wow, this is a good one.  A stolen Gauguin worth between 10-30 million euros is found in a Sicilian kitchen of a retired autoworker...where it's hung for decades!  He bought the work for $100, supposedly fair and square, at an Italian State Railway auction in the mid '70s.  He also has a Bonnard from the same sale.  Obviously this guy has an eye for art.  The man's son had it appraised and the appraiser contacted the Carabinieri...oops!  Looks like a law suit will commence regarding who gets this beauty.
