This is what I found on WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

A French woman hit the jackpot after a 13th-century masterpiece hanging in her kitchen was discovered to be worth millions.

The painting is attributed to the artist Cimabue and is thought to have been done around 1280. The 10-inch-by-8-inch work of art was discovered by an auctioneer who noticed it hanging on the wall between the kitchen and dining room of a woman’s house in Compiègne, according to the Associated Press.

The owner said she thought it had little significance, but after getting it appraised, the wood paining, titled “Christ Mocked,” was determined to likely be part of a diptych by the historic artist. There are noted similarities between the art and two panels of Cimabue’s diptych that are currently hanging in museums in New York and London.
