Renoir found at flea market may have been stolen

(WTVR) – The Renoir painting a Virginia woman bought for just $7 at a flea market in West Virginia may have been stolen 60 years ago.

The Washington Post reports the FBI is investigating whether the painting was pilfered from the Baltimore Museum of Art in 1951.

It is unclear how that would affect the potential sale of the painting.

The woman who found it at the flea market is using an auction house, which estimates it could fetch $100,000.
