Auto Worker Bought $50 Million Worth Of Paintings For Just $25! But Will He Get To Keep The Paintings?!

unsaved grab document

Well, one auto worker has some pretty exceptional taste in art!

One unnamed Fiat employee bought two paintings for $25 in an auction in 1975, but the pair of art is actually worth a whopping $50 million.

While you use a forklift to pick up your jaw from the floor, we'll let you know that the paintings in question are Paul Gauguin's Still Life of Fruit on a Table With a Small Dog and Pierre Bonnard's The Girl With Two Chairs.

However, here's where it gets tricky. Apparently, the paintings were stolen from a British couple in 1970, and eventually left on a train from Paris to Turin, which is why they got auctioned off 5 years later.

Recently, this Fiat employee's son has been trying to sell the paintings, which attracted the attention of the police.

However, the British couple those paintings belonged to apparently died without heirs, so the authorities will now have to determine the rightful owner.

Arrested Development Fans - How Much Does This Early 20th Century Spanish Painting Look Like The Love Child Of George Michael & Maeby?!?

It looks like Lindsay Bluth’s business ‘Mommy, What Will I Look Like?’ works for first cousins too!

Because THAT looks an awful lot like the love child of George Michael and Maeby!

An Arrested Development fan spotted the painting (above) hanging in a Spanish art museum and thought to himself, “…her?”

But then he thought, “wait…that kind of looks like Michael Cera! But with the curly brown locks of Alia Shawkat!”

OMG! It’s uncanny!

The actual doppelgänger is named Doña Carmen Arconada and was painted by Ignacio Zuloaga in the 1940s! Little did she know while sitting for this that someday, two cousins dangereux would be falling for each other on a mildly successful FOX sitcom!

K, well now we want to fly to Europe and see this work of art for ourselves! And we’re sure we’re not alone!

An important rule to remember though AD fans, if you do head to Spain to see this painting…

NO TOUCHING!

It's time for today's pop quiz:

What do Adolph Hitler, George Zimmerman, and former President George W. Bush have in common?

If you said, "each enjoys painting!" then you are RIGHT!!!

(Other acceptable answers include "each has a Y-chromosome" and "none of them stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.")

It's true, though - former president GWB is technically an artist!!!

We know this because he flaunted his impressive array of paint-colored canvases in front of Matt Lauer on Friday's Today show!

Curious to see his take on V-lad Putin? The Dalai Lama? The skull of a Texas longhorn?

Ch-ch-check out the rest of his exhibit, The Art of Leadership: A President's Personal Diplomacy…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
