XXXIX Antique Salon. Opinion on the results
ARTinvestment.RU   27 октября 2015

It seems to be clear to everyone and no one is waiting. And suddenly the corridors of the 39th Salon was filled with people who began to ask the prices, but still buying

the fact that we undertook to write a report about 39-м the Salon speaks for itself. After two previous Salons, where all the participants only did one voice complained about life, and write-то was about. What to write about? that bad? And most importantly — why? Once again, to blame the organizers of the Salon on regular dips in advertising? Again to complain about some of the machinations of the "Museon" and the lack of a large Parking lot? And as a consequence, the lack of visitors who do not wish to move from cars to public transport? Who cares, and so that everyone knows, and anyone not interested in @. he doesn't have. Why in the last couple of times we report Salons abstained. Now that's decided napisati@

What's changed? On the organizational part of the — anything. Advertising was no more, and Parking is now even worse: not only at the Central house of artists nowhere to Park, but around or paid Parking, or there are signs prohibiting stopping. To hell with them, with the signs, we are willing to pay (yet) in Parking lots. So still places net@

Can be, then increased wealth? The economy started to grow and people have excess income that was spent on the acquisition of cultural values? No, and it didn't happen. No income, no one rose — dropped; and we're talking about the rouble income. With prices in dollars it is even worse: after a very "useful" devaluation of all poor. Then maybe strengthened the stability with which some antiquarians had high hopes for the revitalization of business? Wrong again. The antiquary, was severely scolded "all Democrats and liberals" for what they attempted to stability, suddenly today, in the midst of this very stability, cranky. Why-то he has nothing for sale, even ikony@

Seems to be clear to everyone and no one jdet@

And suddenly, the corridors 39-го Salon was filled with people who not only began to examine the pictures, and the pictures began to ask, and then (a miracle!) began to haggle. And then (even more of a miracle) and began to buy. And for the first time in many years, the participants admitted that they were pleased with the Cabin that, despite all of the above, there are visitors, both old (its), and new, and most importantly, there is prodaji@

Here it is the coveted word: THERE are sales, and while many. Yes, sales of these predominantly in the range up to $ 50,000 for Antiques, antique dealers experienced them seriously prinimaut@

— Well, look @me & mdash; they say. — We participate in the circle paid $ 25,000, and sold a couple of pictures to 25 000 dollars, what I make? These images need to sell a dozen just to break even. And one two sales — it's about nothing, so rejoice nechemu@

And yet it's better than nothing. And if there were more serious sales? Yes, there were, and 100,000 dollars and 120,000 dollars, and, say, even for $ 200,000 that-то sold. In these times it is very decent Dengi@

If we talk about the structure of demand by segment according to the participants, here is what one gets mnenie@

  • the European Segment jivopisi@ the Trend of substitution of Russian painting "inexpensive interior Europe" ended, so plainly the Bud. This Cabin was only one sale, and that is partly sluchaina@
  • Фарфор. Several people told that this time, and sold very well to porcelain. In the early days saw people with shopping. Can neither confirm nor deny this, as those few stands with porcelain, to which I went, nothing special sluchilos@
  • Иконы. About the icons, too, some participants told me that they go like hot cakes. And by the way, are some serious collectors on this part were. Grigory Leps, for example, met me several days in a row. However, I went, it turns out far not all, because several booths on the second floor, where were exposed the icons dear, nobody has sold. Does this mean that the rumors are not true? No, it doesn't, porcelain and icons to the theme we are not close, so fully admit that the sample of conversation about the situation was neudachnaya@

Another important trend of the last Salons — dealer purchase. Many sellers have noted that they have enough free money, you could make a very profitable purchase. Many Salons are becoming option not to sell but to buy. What does this mean? That the crisis is forcing owners to part with good works and Salons are convenient for that purpose mesto@

Another pleasant side Salons — fellowship; many just put it in the first place, noting that Salons have turned into a club and it polezno@

so what do we have? We have a good many Antique shops. We have some cautious optimism: what-то part of our fellow citizens have adapted to the situation and slowly begins to make purchases, replenishing the collection, and the second part of the citizens — not adapted and began to slowly sell good work. Both benefit art-рынку. The majority of surveyed participants confirm me the favor of Antique shops in the CHA and collected in the future to participate in them. So life continues, we each other and pozdravlaem@
