A woman from Virginia, who paid seven dollars for a Renoir painting at a flea market, will sell the piece this month for what should be a pretty profit. She had forgotten all about it until she recently decided to clean the house from top to bottom.

Potomack Co., the auction company, suggested that she put the painting, "Paysage Bords de Seine" by impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, up for sale for $75,000 to $100,000. Back almost two years ago, while she was shopping at a West Virginia flea market, the woman, who wants to remain anonymous, found the painting in a box of cheap junk priced at seven dollars by pure chance. When she decided to tidy her home about a week ago she unexpectedly came face-to-face with the painting again. Though the painting was signed by a certain Renoir, she didn't find this very interesting and hoped that she might be able to use its gold frame. But her mother told her to find out about the value of the picture.

"I actually listened to my mom for once," the woman said in an interview. She then contacted Potomack Co., where she showed it to Anne Craner, an art specialist.

"Clearly, it had Renoir's colours, it was the work of his brush," Ms. Craner said. She was later able to use a catalogue to show that the painting was genuine.

The lucky woman said she is still waiting for the shock to go away. "I just want to enjoy it quietly," she said.

She plans to take her mother to France after the auction and will take some flowers to Renoir's grave. "I just want to say thank you to him," she said.
