Rare prints from Cape Dorset found in Michigan house flip

Two people who bought a Michigan home with all of its contents uncovered a treasure trove of Inuit prints.

The discovery, first reported in Inuit Art Quarterly, dates back to the 1970s.

Turns out the previous owner of the home was an art teacher and collector. He had 40 prints – some still in their original packaging.

The new owners plan to sell off the artwork.
