It is first and foremost about how true our predictions. Sometimes there are no words. But nothing to do: where-то will have to look for explanations where-то shrug, and where-то just choose the expression

Begin immediately with the invoice. Below the caption is our prediction and announced the sale price included the auction house Commission. In dollars at the rate of 1.35 pounds (forecasts was calculated at 1.32 dollar per pound, it has no effect). Look at what happened in the end.

it Turns out that for the sixties in General guessed. In this segment, with rare exceptions, all were sold within reason.

And that's the top-лоты classics gone bad: the prices have gone up several times.

Here would we be happy Yes it is time to take advantage of the political moment — e.g., Bravo reported that "Russian week" highlighted the rising confidence of buyers, the increase in consumer activity, the reversal of the price trend, the high potential of investment in art, etc.

But instead want to ask the individual winners: "Why did you do it?".

What prompted you, comrades, sometimes just to pay exorbitant money for the paintings, among which there was not one unequivocal masterpiece? Separately, of course, want to look at the buyers record Goncharova, Apollinaris Vasnetsov and George Rublev. Okay, enough for one Rublev. Two meters of the primitives known only to a narrow circle of connoisseurs and lovers of the artist for $660 150! What is it like? And, Agnessa Ivanovna?! Owner — master, but just wondering. Suddenly there's a-то phenomenal factor that we have overlooked?

the Mind boggles.

And we have left the framework forecasts traditionally the main supplier wonders for the auction Russian art market. For example, this time from the house MacDougall's news came about the sale of "the heroes of the first five-year plan" Deineka for about $3 780 000. Deineka pass, without a hint of innovation. To see in this picture the star of Soviet art, the viewer will have to read the label. And now this work for a long time, will likely adorn top-100 Russian art.

In General, my and not only my advice: this time, never mind the records. For the most part they have no rational explanation. And consider these prices to the new market benchmarks would be ill-advised. But in General, again... imagine, the opposite happened: traded sluggish, bought by the lower estimate, no, even absurd, there is no record — boring, girls. So let it is better so. To strengthen the fighting spirit is definitely better.
