Art As well as being written on, fivers can also make your day when you find them in the street or at the bottom of your pocket. The Art Gallery equivallent of this is finding a Botticelli in your vaults:
"the Botticelli has long been a puzzle which hung mostly unseen in the basement galleries. Over the years it had been variously attributed to Matteo di Giovanni, the workshop of Fra Filippo Lippi and Francesco Botticini, though a few scholars, notably Carlo Gamba, believed it to be an authentic Botticelli all along."
Which actually sounds a bit like trying to work out who farted in a very small room.
