A mystery painting found in a cluttered Arizona garage -- and believed to be the work of Jackson Pollock -- may fetch $15 million at auction next week, it was reported Tuesday.
The painting belonged to the estate of a Sun City retiree who was related to a New York City art collector, the Phoenix New Times reports.
It goes up for auction next Tuesday at J. Levine Auction & Appraisal in Scottsdale.
“I'm convinced it's a Jackson Pollock, but nobody will attest that it's by Jackson Pollock,” Levine told the news weekly.
The painting could easily fetch millions more if authenticated.
A foundation connected to Pollock’s widow no longer authenticates the abstract expressionist’s works.
What's more, there have been many high-profile disputes in the past over the authenticity of Pollock paintings, according to the Prescott Daily Courier.
