CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -

A Corpus Christi man who inherited a painting from his mother took it to appraisers with the popular PBS program "Antiques Roadshow" and has learned it's worth up to $1 million.

Rue Ferguson says his great-grandparents bought the painting by Mexican artist Diego Rivera in the 1920s. He got it last May when his mother died. He showed it to appraisers when the PBS program came to Corpus Christi to tape three episodes for its 17th season that starts in January.

The painting is the highest appraisal so far for the upcoming season.

Ferguson had kept it in a box in his office. It's now in a bank vault.
