Paintings and other works of art, which were discovered in an abandoned barn in Connecticut, have turned out to be worth millions of dollars. Notified by a contractor, Jared Whipple, a mechanic from Waterbury, retrieved the dirt-covered pieces from a dumpster which contained materials from a barn in Watertown. Whipple later found out the works were by Francis Hines, an abstract expressionist, who died in 2016 at the age of 96, and who had stored his work in the barn. He was renowned for his “wrapping” pieces, in which fabric is wrapped around an object.
