About the find

At ROADSHOW’s 2014 Birmingham, Alabama event, Paintings appraiser Colleene Fesko discovered a family treasure with some very personal provenance. It was a portrait of the guest’s great-grandfather, a cavalry officer, painted by the renowned 19th-century American artist Frederic Remington. Five years later, ROADSHOW catches up with Fesko to learn what’s happened to the painting since she first appraised it.
