Antiques Roadshow: Tucson, Ariz. - Hour Three

Airs Monday, August 20, 2012 at 8 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Tucson, Arizona, appraiser Colleen Fesko of Skinner (right) proves she's an insider when she discovers a trio of paintings by 20th-century French "outsider " artist Gaston Chaissac. The artist never fit into a standard style, using anthropomorphic shapes, pre-historic images, children's art images, with a strong Picasso influence throughout his pieces. Purchased by the owner's parents at an art gallery in Paris in the early 1960s, this collection of later Chaissac works is given an auction value of $50,000 to $100,000.

Specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the nation travel throughout the United States offering free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds.
