    Ryan, Copake_ham,
    as I’m now twice being hinted at my use of the term `worth´ there might be a linguistic misunderstanding. (Though I did not trace it in dictionaries so far.)

    In case you should not know this from other posts of mine, I’m not a native speaker.
    I just took the German usage of this word 1/1. Here it means being of value as appointed by the market. But also value from a personal perspective: what I would spend on sth. or even what I think should be spend by others.
    My apologies for not putting things clear enough.

    My guess is that as soon as the lady sells the painting to a dealer or auction house, it will shortly thereafter suddenly be 'discovered' to have been a genuine Pollock, and the price will sky-rocket. Just a coincidence, though.

    What you need is something really substantial for those sums of money. Take this for example and just think $2 = £1.

    AgX,

    the difference between "Worth" and "Value" is a difficult one for us Germanic-speaking people. We must take our comfort from the long compound nouns, and the marvellous wines that the less fortunate cannot even begin to pronounce (Trockenbeerenauslese, anyone?)...

    From the posted article it seems most agree it isn't his style. Now maybe that's why he threw it out. But the finger print at most proves he touched it.
    Well, now I saw the broadcast of this 60 Mintues segment and they had a section where the man who ran the local dump in which Pollack dumped his trash had scavenged a few of the canvases to make signs. One side was a "No Trespassing" sign, the other a partial Pollack rejected painting!

    Could be a painting that Pollack wasn't happy with that got tossed but somehow didn't get burned or turned into a dump sign...
