Found - a Lichtenstein 'lost' for 42 years

Interesting how the art historical time-scales shrink for modern and contemporary art: these days, a painting unseen for just a generation can be hailed as a 'lost' work - with all the attendant publicity. In this case (a Roy Lichtenstein painting that's been found in storage in New York), it seems 'mislaid' is a more appropriate word. And (am I being too sceptical?) standby for the picture to appear at auction soon, heralded as a major 'discovery'.
