Pollock and his "last painting"

I'm reading an article on Jackson Pollock and his lover, Ruth Kligman.
It's an interesting tale.  Pollock may or may not have painted his "last painting" for Kligman. 
Pollock's wife, Krasner, never believed the painting was authentic.  Last fall this painting was scheduled to go to auction at a very high price but the auction house removed it or else postponed the sale awaiting an investigation.  As far as I can tell, this painting did not go to auction.
