Helium Korzhev. Some of the prices on the auctions

On the eve of the most important exhibitions in the Tretyakov gallery, we publish excerpts from auction statistics famous Soviet realist

Is the classic of Soviet realism were exhibited at auction more than 10 times. This is not enough. But the problem is that the available auction results for works of Helium Korzheva are now of mainly historical interest. Everything is so dramatically changed that even the figures of two years ago in our days are not particularly revealing. Just keep this in mind.

If you look at the statistics of auction results for Helium Korzheva, it is clear that 10 years ago a small oil sketch of completeness could be bought in the range $10 000–$15 000. And in 2015-м the same at auction buyers are willing to pay for his small drawings. In 2010-е good painting Korzheva exhibited with an estimate of up to $50,000. But the demand was not excessive and even strong things could not find a buyer for the money.

the highest estimate on the Russian auction market was named in October 2014 at the auction SOVKOM. Large, four feet tall, the painting "Nude with a chair in the Studio" 1975 was put up for auction with estimate of 5 000 000-10 000 000. Picture good, but was not sold. The course is 10 000 000 —, it was about $244 000. However, at that time the market was already disoriented incipient crisis — and auctions could happen with anything.

I Think not much mistaken if I say that the sharp growth of interest in the work Helium Korzheva — trend of the past two years, coinciding with the course of change of estimates in our recent history. A return to the values of the USSR in cultural policy and in policy in General. Gallery on the market not so long ago there were information that some wealthy people are willing to pay for outstanding works Korzheva up to a million dollars. It's ridiculously expensive. But anything can happen. Indeed, in recent years were made very correct steps to ensure that the name of the artist to raise. For example, in 2014 there was created the Fund of cultural and historical heritage of Helium Korzheva, catalogues and important work done by a roster of his works. Four years before, when Korzhev was still alive, held an important meeting with the banker Alexei Ananyev (PSB), which in 2011 opened the Museum the Institute of Russian Realist art. This Museum has a room Korzheva, which acquired an important work. Today this hall Korzheva can be called the real gem of the Museum IRRI.

so today all coincided: a large-scale painter, active driving forces a huge monographic exhibition in the Tretyakov gallery, influential patrons, and extremely successful historic moment. So, if today outstanding oil Korzheva on first class international auction, resulting in $500,000 or even $1 000 000 though I would be surprised, but not too much.
