The theft of paintings Savrasov
ARTinvestment.RU   10 марта 2016

There were two paintings of Alexei Savrasov, kidnapped in 2014. Congratulations on the success of law enforcement agencies. And parallel thinking, what lessons can be learned from this story

Two paintings of Alexei Savrasov, kidnapped in 2014 and previously in the collection of the late doctor of art history Natalia Pomerantseva, was found. Operatives got the canvas on stretchers from the plastic bag in which they kept the native of Azerbaijan who sought a buyer. A report and video with detainees published in the website of the Moscow police. Most parts of this history is written in the MC, and this information does not contradict the fact that we do know reliably.

Now the consequence understands, they're real or not, determines the value of the stolen. Judging by the staff in the video, we are talking about small works, 40 × 30 or a little more, 1880-х. The plot is clear by the names — "Early spring" and "Breath of spring". If they are true (and likely is), we can assume the market value.

the Formal auction record Savrasov — $1 430 000. But for the record it is impossible to navigate, you need to watch the recent sale of the comparable class of things. In 2014, the landscape Savrasov comparable class "Arrival of spring" 1880-х, was sold at Christie's for $164 000. Given the fact that Savrasov not travel abroad, i.e. to sell it only in Russia, taking into account the current situation on the domestic market, today this could cost up to $120 000, or about 8.5 million rubles. This is five times more than expected to get the hapless seller (unlikely he stole it), if you believe the publications.

MIA Employees — sincere congratulations, well done, what was found. But suddenly would have found faster if there was a resource that had published photos of stolen works? MIA has such base for official use. But market participants have — auctions, galleries, dealers — access to this information. Neither paid, nor free, no. stolenart.ru, but there only a few items. It is not clear what the authorities fear. Criminals will see highlights things and will destroy my property? We doubt that criminals will start to burn the painting (although such cases are known). But it is obvious that access to the database of stolen works could become a powerful means of prevention of such crimes. And we, incidentally, finished as best to facilitate the emergence of such a base — to maintain and the technologies and competencies.

However, even without that experience shows that stealing works of art for the purpose of sale — is like to take bribes obviously marked bills. In the first stage can get away with, but sooner or later one-то will fall @the mdas and the thread will be pulled. That is to steal the painting to resell it almost pointless — troublesome and too dangerous.
