Synopsis: Teri Horton knew nothing about art when she bought a big, drippy painting for $5 years ago. But now she says a fingerprint proves it's a $50 million Jackson Pollock original.
Follow up: From what we could find, the controversy over whether Teri Horton’s painting is an authentic Jackson Pollock continues to this day. From the research we did it seems the painting is still for sale and Ms. Horton has turned down offers as high as $9 million, she’s asking $50 million. The art community continues to bicker over its authenticity with lawsuits being filed alleging reputations and credentials of various experts have been impugned.
