The work, estimated at 2.8 million rubles was transferred to the dealer but then the dealer disappeared

Never been — and then again on July 29, 2020 the police of Moscow received a complaint about the disappearance of paintings from the owner, "far from the world of art" and decided to sell the work through an unfamiliar dealer, who was found on the recommendation of the who-то know.

on the Basis of the case materials, the owner of the work, a native of Saratov, who bought the painting by Fedot Sychkov "Girlfriends" at auction for approximately 2.8 million rubles in 2018, six months later wanted to sell the work. Despite the breadth of his interests and, apparently, a rather big circle of friends of the owner of the picture (the media describe him as "coach for spiritual and physical development, faith, positive thinking, and the seller of apricots"), to find buyers among his friends he could not. And gave a picture on the implementation in the dealer's hand, "expert painting", which "found a friend". Well, as usual, many months received from the "expert" assurances that the negotiations with potential buyers and soon the deal will be made. A year later the owner of the painting had had enough, and he began to demand the return of "Girlfriends" on that until mid-July received assurances by SMS that the work or the money for it here-вот will be conveyed to him. However, a couple of weeks ago, the relationship with the dealer broke, and the owner of the picture found out that the expert was able to leave the country. And so it came to police, who promised to investigate.

we Wish the owner a speedy return of the painting and recall that, regardless of the remoteness from the world and the art market, if you want to sell/buy a piece of art or collectibles, the best option is to take advantage of the numerous auction sites. If you can not determine the choice of auction, you can go through all and choose the one that is suitable the level of service or other parameters. Regardless of the selection criteria, selling the work at auction, at least you can be sure that the painting is in good hands and, if necessary, it can be seen or pick up almost any time before the auction.

it is Especially important not to let things drift if you're holding the picture the author Fedot Sychkov, whose auction record is $614 thousand for the work of "Children with sunflowers" sold at the "Russian bid" Sotheby's in London in November 2007, and the sale of one painting only from January to July 2020 made more than $83 thousand and this figure, according to the demand of the artist, not the final.
