Eric Wimmer was in shock when he stepped into a Casper home full of art.

The curator of the Nicolaysen Art Museum was visiting the home in March because its owner, who recently died, had donated his vast collection to the Nic. Wimmer entered and was immediately greeted by a painting.

Was that an authentic Thomas Moran?

Wimmer has a master’s degree in art history. In grad school, Moran, a titan in Western art, was one of his all-time favorites. He’d spend hours at a Denver art museum looking at Moran’s paintings, and now there was one sitting right in front of him in the foyer of the Casper home.

If you're shelling out $38 million for a property, you'd hope there would be a few bonuses thrown in.

Thankfully Phil Maloof, the former New Mexico state senator and a member of the wealthy Maloof family, has got you covered - adding Dali and Picasso paintings to the already extensive inventory of his breathtaking Las Vegas penthouse.

He reportedly bought the 27,000-square-foot Palms Place penthouse in 2008 for a mere $4.5 million, but he has since completely refurbished the home and deck in a breathtaking feat of opulence.

The apartment, which takes over the entire 59th floor of Palms Place tower, has 360 degree unobstructed views of the entire Las Vegas valley from decks that can fit up to 200 people.

An oil painting bought for a mere €150 (£120) from a dusty antiques shop in northeastern Spain 26 years ago has been discovered to be the earliest surrealist work by Salvador Dali, art experts confirmed on Thursday.

The colourful scene - depicting angels swirling in the sky around a womblike cloud formation above a flaming volcano - caught the eye of Tomeu L'Amo, a young art historian as he browsed canvases in a cluttered antique shop in the city of Girona, northeastern Spain in 1988.

He suspected it may have been an early work by Catalan artist Salvador Dali but the shopkeeper insisted that was impossible as it bore an inscription with the date 1896, eight years before Dali was born.
