(AFP/GETTY IMAGES) - This handout image provided by The Potomack Company auctioneers shows a painting by French painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

I didn't know Renoir painted that small, if it's real - but then I don't know much about Renoir.
I think I smell a fish.

Adds - now I'm reading the comments. They're almost more interesting than the article.

@ossobuco,
That IS an interesting story.

There is so much commotion around here today that I want to read it more carefully (including the comments) in the morning.

I'm not overly familiar with the size of Renoir's paintings but I've often been surprised by the size of different art works -- imagining them much larger or smaller than they really are.

Some friends of my parents had a Rembrandt -- it was tiny, like postcard sized.
