One Man's Trash, Another Man's Treasure
A group of students, alumnae, art donors and former employees filed motions to keep Randolph College from selling four paintings from its collection, George Bellows's "Men of the Docks," Edward Hicks's "A Peaceable Kingdom," Ernest Hennings's "Through the Arroyo" and Rufino Tamayo's "Troubador,"
scheduled to be sold through Christie's auction house next month. They expect $32 million for the college's endowment, says the Washington Post.
Hey, isn't that the same Tamayo whose painting "Three People" was just found in the trash?
I believe it is.
That's another of his works above.
