Carl Sabatino was fond of a particular painting in his late aunt's home and called it "the woman in the fuzzy hat". When his aunt passed away, she gifted him the painting thinking that it was out of fondness.
However, he remembered his aunt's last words to him, "Don’t forget, Carl, to look under the sewing machine,” he recalled. Under the sewing machine is the painting and he looked at it carefully and he saw the signature of one of the greatest painters that walked the earth - Pablo Picasso. The painting is estimated worth $30 million!
Sabatino believed that the painting is a recreation of his 1901 masterpiece, “Woman With A Cape,” which is displayed in the Cleveland Museum of Art.

He brought the painting to an expert who almost immediately dismissed Sabatino’s painting as a fake. However, Sabatino backed his suspicion with research. Picasso tinkered on a particular color printing technique in 1936, and he believed that his painting is one of the product of the said experimental period.
He sought the opinion of a second expert who extracted some pigment from the painting and said it matched materials that were used in Europe in the 1930s.
