Many have realized that "still life with lilacs" Petrova-Водкина — is the only absolute masterpiece of this Russian week — are able to surprise. It was not difficult to predict that it will exceed the preliminary estimate Chrisrie''s four times-пять. But in the end the buyer paid almost 10 times more than the estimate — $11 793 540. And here is the result: this artist now for 10-м place in the top-100 for Russian art. Between de steel and Goncharova. Against this background, it may seem that top-лот rival Sotheby's — still life of Mikhail Larionov — is not "shot". Well, what is it — excess of the estimate just two times rather than four (as I counted) and not ten... But the number on the scoreboard nevertheless quite convincing — $2 762 250. Though not a record, but a mighty one million. That Russian bidding in itself is a rarity.

so, below dry summary: what were the predictions and in what actually it turned. Prices converted at the exchange rate of 1.27 dollars per pound.

Comment: In General, Christie's too much of the predictions I have do not come true. That I would like to adjust retroactively, — is much too high expectations on the city view Alexander Gerasimov. The hope was the magic of the place, on the Tverskaya, 13, but the magic didn't work. Surprised I haven't left dear Grigoriev — "medieval" portrait "Le-Пулиген". Compared to other reference sales Grigoriev such an outcome was hard to imagine. I feel sorry for a negative result, "Bull hides" Dmitry Plavinsky. Large, textured, very distinctive canvas famous Russian of the sixties with an estimate of $26 000 — Yes, they still have! In Moscow this would have gone in flight. Well, for the rest it is to be happy. Many of the works sold above expectations. For example, the same Krasnopevtsev bought twice as expensive Moscow prices. Want to check? We have this coming Friday at the auction of the Auction will be sold Krasnopevtsev of the same class, and even higher, but with a reserve twice as more profitable.

Comment: At Sotheby's predictions came accurate. Most lots went even beyond my expectations. However, without much inflection. Shishkin, Aivazovsky, Konstantin Makovsky — artists liquid, with its own established market, so prices on them are not emotional but objective. Weisberg purchased with the overpayment (even critical). Nyssa — twice the upper estimate, but cheaper than I thought. Perhaps this is due to the fact that one of the main buyers of this class of Nyssa now select a Museum in Moscow. Bright Schwarzman bought super close to the forecast. And "the River Oyat" Polenov had almost touched the mark of one million dollars. Good trading, we can safely congratulate the organizers.

Bonhams. The Russian Sale. 5 Jun 2019

At Bonhams, also bought a top-лот — "portrait of a girl in a pink dress" Philip Malyavina — for $397000. Left separate and expensive work of Ivan Pohitonova — for example, his "Study based on the Corot. Bathers on the banks of the Marne" (Paris, 1900) bought for $200 111. From unexpected auction records set — $158 800 for a two-meter canvas Tselkova 1985. Alas, other items that I noted in the forecast, not sold. For the prosaic reason for the high estimate. If the collector need blood from his nose (it happens), such tactics can work. But to buy a profitable will not work. If reserves are much lower (as also happens), then the publication of such estimate exactly how much more harm than good. However pricing — it's up to the organizers to decide how they work better.

all Right, all took place, to wait and assume you no longer need, everyone can exhale. Congratulations to the organizers of the Russian trade with the end of a hot week, with positive results. And happy customers — with new acquisitions.

But then London.

Those who believe, the success of Russian art at Albion clear signs of improvement in the art-экономики in our domestic market, I do not advise to jump to conclusions. A direct link between the two markets of Russian art had long been there. There can be good, but here — via-прежнему or even worse. Laws, prejudice and the business-климат in Russia, not London. But the relationship runs in the opposite direction: if in London Russian art comes seams, then we here haunt. And — Yes, new information and positive emotions. Useful for health.
