Mans Family Found a $30 Million Art Fortune in Garage


Before he died, artist Arthur Pinajian told his family to just throw all of his old paintings into the garbage when he died. Well, his family didn’t follow his orders — and it’s a good thing they didn’t.

The family found thousands of paintings and works by the Armenian artist in the garage. And as it turns out, they are worth roughly $30 million.

“That’s what he said, ‘just let them go in the garbage,’” said Peter Pinajian, the artist’s cousin. “I kept saying, ‘how could you say that?’”
