寄付の絵画、落札額は数千万円

米国の慈善団体 Goodwill に匿名で寄付された絵画がネットオークションにかけられ、10ドル(約1,200円)からスタートしました。

この作品、20世紀初頭のアメリカ印象派の画家、フランク・ウェストン・ベンソンの水彩画で、専門家が本物と鑑定。

それを機に価格は急騰し、結局16万5千ドル(約2千万円)で落札されました。

寄贈者は、絵の価値を分かっていたのでしょうか?団体の関係者によると、

“We get donations that have come through the generations of a family, and as it goes from one person to the next the true value may not be understood.I've seen that many, many times."”
「何世代にもわたって受け継がれた物を寄付として受け取ることがある。そういう物は、多くの人の手を介する間に、本当の価値を見失われてしまう場合も。私はそんなケースを何度も見てきた」

今ごろ、ヤケ酒をあおっているかもしれません。


今日のワンポイント

「(値段や温度など)が急上昇する」
