Artwork Covered in Bird Droppings Sells for $3 Million.

An oil sketch done by Dutch Master Anthony van Dyck is going up for auction soon after being found discarded in a farm shed covered with bird droppings. Bought on a hunch for $600 in 2002 from an estate auction, it's predicted to sell for $3 million when it goes up at Sotheby's. A Study of Saint Jerome, created between 1612 and 1618, is one of only two known live model works completed by the painter Anthony van Dyck. (GoodNewsNetwork)
