Carter painting found in Mid Wales

"A painting by famous Egyptologist Howard Carter is to be valued after it turned up at a charity antiques event in Mid Wales. The gouache by Carter (1874-1939), who famously discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings in 1922, is of Queen Senseneb. Signed by Carter and dated 1897, it was discovered at Halls Fine Art’s version of the Antiques Roadshow, in Barmouth."
