What kind of pictures gives Putin
ARTinvestment.RU   23 ноября 2017

Paintings — is one of the most frequent gifts that the President gives for the camera. In the week he congratulated the Patriarch on his birthday, again giving a picture — with the decoration of the assumption Cathedral of the Kremlin. Remember that even Putin gave famous people

For the last couple of years in the frame of official television coverage and then got the picture. On the birthday of Patriarch Kirill, the singer Joseph Kobzon, cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, President Putin gave paintings and sculptures.

What was common in all the paintings for gifts? Not so little.

it is Noted that each such gift —. Patriarch — Cathedral. Kobzon — theme of Donbass, where he was born. Tereshkova — two things seagulls, because Chayka was her call sign in space. The only mystery — yellow bulldozer for Medvedev. The call to continue to plow like a tractor? I do not know.

All of the paintings in my memory under the chamber gave the President, executed in a realistic manner. In most cases, it was the socialist realism of the Soviet era, and once modern salon painting. No conceptual art, no abstract art, no interpretations and ambiguities. The main thing is to look neat.

Among the authors of a gift of works not met very very first names. Except that Julian Rukavishnikov more-менее at the hearing. And all the other artists had to remember to watch on the bases. Among them are no longer with us socialisti, there are modern and even very young writers.

Another common point: all the paintings we saw in the shot, did what-то special store exclusive. Almost all of these things previously exhibited atRussian auctions, got into the databases of auction results or sold openly on the websites of aggregators paintings. Info about them-прежнему hanging in the Internet. And to buy them could either.

Finally, all the pictures of the gifts were relatively inexpensive. Approximately in the range of 100 000-200 000. The amount of the complex. If you try, then it will be enough for some of the first names of the "other art", but the untrained viewer, these things may not understand. Imagine Tereshkova — graphics Zvereva draw or collage Nemukhin? But at classical level Polenov, Shishkin, Aivazovsky, or would need the money to order large. And this is not accepted. Executive gifts — according to the custom of the thing is inexpensive, a gesture of courtesy, but with an eye to quote. Exactly why I would not confidently put a sign of equality between "gives Putin" and "Putin likes it". However, to suggest otherwise I also have no reason.

generally seen in the frame of the picture is eloquently illustrated only one rule: the roads are not gift, and attention. Besides, once the film press-службы of the Kremlin, these paintings are at once sharply added in the price. Provenance-то they are now — uuuh!
