The new owner of the Bellport cottage found thousands of paintings, drawings and journals by Arthur Pinajian. News 12 Long Island says Peter Hastings Falk valued the works. He once appraised art from the Andy Warhol estate.
Some pieces already have sold for $500,000. Fifty of his landscapes are currently on exhibit at Manhattan's Fuller Building.
A recently published book by art historian William Innes Homer calls Pinajian's abstractions among the best of his era.
The bungalow was purchased in 2007 by Thomas Schultz.
