Huguette Clark

The reclusive heiress Huguette Clark died last year leaving behind millions of dollars worth of real estate and a contested will. Besides the squabbles over who owns her homes (which she barely lived in during the last year of her life, though her dolls did as Curbed NY has the story on), there is a disagreement over one of Monet's Water Lily paintings valued at $25M that was in some versions of her will to be bequeathed to the Corcoran Gallery of Art. The saga involves all sorts of people coming out of the woodwork to lay claim to the fortune. [Curbed NY; WaPo]
