    Painting "old masters" has withstood the crisis

    Collectors, who arrived in Maastricht on the world's largest art fair TEFAF, more willing to invest in the "old masters" than in the work of modernist and contemporary artists.

    The two most notable transactions in the sector of "old masters" were male portrait by Rubens, sold for 6.46 million dollars (slightly below the original price), and genre painting "The old lady for a meal", Gabriel Metsu, who went to an American collector for 4.6 million dollars (Information The New York Times). On average, prices for "old masters" have remained roughly the same as in 2008, but demand for them has not fallen despite the crisis.

    Early July in London will be devoted to the oeuvre of old masters.
      First major London gallery specializing in old paintings, together with the auction houses to attract the attention of collectors to the art of XIV-XIX centuries.

    Читать дальше... 
    In the Week of paintings by old masters are two dozen of the most respected galleries in London, located in the areas of Bond Street (ibid., where auction halls Sotheby `s) and King Street (where Christie` s). From 4 until 10 July gallery owners are satisfied with special exhibitions and lectures, their doors will be open from morning till night, and in these days of Christie `s and Sotheby` s will hold their pre-auction exhibition (their bid will be 7 and 8 July). At a special map shows how densely concentrated in this prestigious area of the gallery, if not deterred by cultural overload, they can be circumvented in one day. And congestion can easily happen - the collection of all creep up impressive (the majority of works in galleries for sale).

    Among the most famous names in the collections of the London gallerists - Lucas Cranach the Elder. The exhibition, devoted to creativity of the great artist of the Northern Renaissance, arranges gallery Colnaghi, the oldest operating art gallery in the world. Here you will see seven Cranach paintings from private collections, in addition, the exhibition shows how the artist's influence on his colleagues continued unabated for centuries. It can be seen in the painting by Ernst Kirchner, German Expressionist beginning of the twentieth century, with naked in a hat, in the angular "Gothic" pose, and engravings by Pablo Picasso (one of which was created expressly for the explanation of the Cranach).

    Project on Dutch and Flemish paintings of XVII century and the Italian lead, gallery shows Richard Green. It can see the "Village Festival" by Pieter Brueghel the Younger and the Seller's game, his pupil Frans Snyders. Snyders, a typical representative of the Flemish baroque is famous for its shops - fish, meat and fruit. Said he, Peter Paul Rubens called him for help when he had to write animal or battered game.

    Probably will look pathetic exhibition galleries Rafael Valls - it is devoted to portraits of children XVII and XVIII centuries. The earliest is a portrait of a boy in ceremonial dress, with a dog, written in 1605 by the Dutch artist Van Zelvenom. This portrait, incidentally, was sold a year ago at auction Christie `s for £ 97 thousand wonder how much fabric is now. At the same auction last year sold sumptuous still life Ambrosius Bosschaert Younger (out of £ 120 thousand). Now, this still life with fruit, seashells and the lizard can be seen in the gallery Sphinx Fine Art, which displays 100 paintings by old masters "from XV and to the XIX century.

    Italian art exhibition devoted to a Simon C. Dickinson. Her star - a sketch of a grand painting of the church in Naples brush Luca Giordano, known for his ability to write very quickly Fa-Presto. The sketch depicts the expulsion of the merchants from the temple. Florence painters devoted to the collection galleries Robilant & Voena; Moretti Fine Art gallery shows artists of Tuscany XIV-XVI centuries.

    Wandering between the galleries, you can not avoid halls Sotheby `s and Christie` s, in which experts from auction houses on the old masters will watch being relieved of potential buyers.

    This year's enormously successful Sotheby `s - that the auction house had the honor to sell the collection of Barbara Piasecki-Johnson (July 8). This collection of Renaissance and Baroque (painting, applied art, furniture) was going for decades, and reflects the tastes of Barbara Piasecki-Johnson, the wife of one of the founders of the pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson, whose personal fortune before the crisis, Forbes estimates at $ 2.6 billion is from her collection in 2005 was sold Bedmintongsky cabinet, which became the world's most expensive piece of furniture ($ 36.7 million). The collection is large, it is divided into night and day trading.

    At night reigns a grand canvas of the famous Spaniard Husepe Ribera. It's "Prometheus", was created, apparently, in the early period of the artist. Dynamic composition, the dramatic effects of light and shadow, the naturalism in the depiction of the suffering - Prometheus all twisted in pain and screaming, while the eagle had already swallowed a piece of his liver - this picture is similar scenes with the holy martyrs who Ribera wrote a lot in the 1630-ies . The canvas is estimated at £ 800 thousand-1, 2 million addition, the evening auctions - samples of Italian Baroque sculpture, such as bronze "Hercules and the Centaur" (£ 600-800 thousand), and rare furniture. Day trading works from the collection of Barbara Piasecki-Johnson certainly attract a huge number of customers: it was an excellent taste, and it has collected numerous paintings now valued modestly, caught estimate and £ 5-7 thousand (although at the auction they will surely grow).

    Calendar auctions Sotheby `s (July 8) also collected a lot of masterpieces. For example, the sale equestrian portrait of Godoy, Duke of Alcudia, a favorite of the Spanish King Charles IV, the hand of Francisco Goya. Sotheby `s experts say this portrait is the most significant works of art ever put up for tender, its estimate £ 2,5-3,5 million in the same amount at an auction estimate" Village in the winter with the Massacre of the Innocents "by Pieter Brueghel the Younger and a pair of charming female heads of Jean-Honore Fragonard, which can serve as a perfect example of the rococo style in painting.

    The world record for the estimate and the quality can claim a large picture of the Dutchman XVII century Gabriel Metsu (£ 1,2-1,8 million). Woman selling battered game "- is a large canvas filled with famed artist calm and admiration of the details of everyday life. Pearlescent goose feathers in the foreground, a hare, though beaten, but playfully squinting, the maid, her fingers delicately holding a piece of raw bacon - from canvases eye tear.

    Apparently, the crisis has yet to enter the market excellent products. At auction Christie `s (7 July) sold fabric of the High Representative of the Florentine Renaissance Fra Bartolomeo, who studied at the works of Leonardo da Vinci and a former senior friend of Raphael. The canvas Madonna with Child, Saint Elizabeth and the infant John the Baptist was "horrible for auction from the collection of a certain lady, Brenda Cook and rated at £ 2-3 million is terrible to say, over the past twenty years is only the fourth work of Fra Bartolomeo, appearing at the auctions, and, without doubt, the best.

    Venetian XVIII century vedutist Michele Marieschi not as glorified as Canaletto, but the types of canals and palazzi are widely known. The painting "The courtyard of the Palace of the Doges' is unusual in that it depicts the Doge's palace with an unusual point of view: this is not the facade that faces the lagoon and the inner, facing the giants of the Ladder and the butt end of the Cathedral of St. Mark. The canvas is estimated at £ 2 million, it could serve as a kind of talisman Christie `s: the first time it was sold by auction in 1775, trades conducted the founder of the auction house, James Christie. Then it was sold several times - always at Christie `s, and yet it is always a constant increase in prices.

    A brilliant portrait of Sir Anthony van Dyck (£ 800 thousand-1, 2 million), watercolor by William Turner (£ 200-300 thousand) and the recently discovered "head boy" Frans Hals (£ 300-500 thousand) complete the picture of trades Christie `s.

    In addition to painting, both auction houses will be on separate auctions to sell and schedule, and weeks of paintings by old masters in London galleries and will add more Week graphics. http://www.kommersant.ru/doc.aspx?DocsID=1192401
