Well, in Russia's art market a new record. 51 million - is 1,725 million dollars in top-20 for Russian art not come, but at random in the top 25 should. But in a class of contemporary Russian photography (and more generally for modern art) is an absolute record. Recall that the previous record for a contemporary Russian photography - 58 tys.funtov (installed in 2008).

While photos Tobolsk "bird's-eye view" of interest. Yes, and "subject", even so Tobolsk in XVI-XIX centuries. considered the capital of Siberia. And before that city was called Isker and was the capital of the Siberian Khanate, and it took him Ermak, expelling Khan Kuchum.
Remember in the movie CHapaev with his men singing Wild Breguet Irtysh
Sat Ermak, enveloped in the Duma. (c)?
Any work by the President of Russia will always be very expensive ...
but sold only 1 picture ... or am I mistaken?
And can I buy another investor 10-20-30 ... pictures created by the President of Russia for the same amount?
Always good when a person has admirers of his work.
And here is an interesting article explaining how everything happened.
Medvedev went to the forest brothers
The sensation was the amount for which was acquired photowork Russia's president "Tobolsk Kremlin. At Christmas charity auction in St Petersburg, Mikhail Zingarevich, which with the head of state has long-standing friendship, laid out for the photograph of 51 million rubles.
For many, the emergence of art auction photos, personally removed Dmitry Medvedev, was a big surprise. The main intrigue created at this time, only two works - "Marble Bridge" chapter of St. Petersburg and the Pushkin chairman of the Federal Assembly Sergei Mironov. However, the president of Support Send picture Tobolsk Kremlin has made a nice buzz. Snapshot This, they say, was made by Dmitry Anatolyevich during his election campaign. Before the auction the work of the president carefully, if not painstakingly, regarded journalists and photographers. They drew attention to one detail - the picture inside the Kremlin and the surrounding streets could be seen only one person. Where is all Tobolsk folk, when the future president was flying over the city by helicopter, remained a mystery.
Mironov, "left" for half a million without much zeal on the part of philanthropists, reaching the psychologically important milestone, his picture is more in price did not rise. Valentina Matvienko this year beat his personal record. Her work from year to year shows a steady growth in the price: if it "bear" two years ago, who later became a symbol and a Christmas fair and the auction went under the hammer for 11 million, then last year's "Blizzard" has risen to 11.5. At this time, adding another half, the work of the governor of the city was sold for 13 million already become traditional buyer and collector of paintings brush head of the city master Yevnevich (Maxidom "). His daughter Maria last year bought just now "Blizzard".
Interestingly, before the start of the auction, in his welcome address, Valentina Matvienko thanked all patrons participating in the bidding, citing and Evnevich, so passing in his collection the next picture, she confessed: "I did not know that my words of gratitude are 13 million" .
Alexander Yevnevich was already prepared to celebrate victory and the most anticipated lot. The initial rate of 20 thousand for Medvedev's photograph immediately jumped one million copies, followed sounded: forty million. The auctioneer and head of the auction Igor Gavryushkin even asked. "Four and a zero" - calmly explained who called the price. And he pointed to his fingers. Sitting with him at the same table Evnevich also explained his bet on his fingers: opened his right palm and connects the index and middle fingers of his left, raising the bar to reach, it would seem, 50 million. (For comparison, all lots of last year's auction of $ 70 million left over). Hall got up to celebrate such a generous gesture. In the applause was almost missed, as per the most recent table stood a hand with a card and keep it in the hands of Mikhail Zingarevich quietly added to a sensational amount of another, perhaps more symbolic, a million. At such exorbitant figures for other philanthropists arrange Vanity Fair no one was going, so that more hands were raised.
Very surprising was that released before the hall Zingarevich St. Petersburg business community did not recognize. Someone has persistently asked him to name loudly. Indeed, the appearance of the two brothers Zingrevichey may be not so widely known - they are some of the most non-public business north of the capital. However, on projects for which they are taken, without exception, all they know.
In the field of view of shareholders of the forest holding Ilim Pulp Zingarevich brothers were the significant places of St. Petersburg: the company Plaza Lotus Group, Chairman of the Board of Directors which is Boris Zingarevich, does not deny plans to build a boutique hotel overlooking the Champ de Mars - just on-site offices "North-West Energy Company" and "TGC-1". They have chosen another place in the neighborhood: a complex of buildings on Konyushennaya area. Two-story building is already actively released from tenants: closed such religious establishments in the city as Achtung Baby and Mod. It is likely that in their place will office space. In addition, Boris and Mikhail Zingarevich the co-building of the underground complex under the Uprising Square. But according to preliminary calculations, the project will require investments of more than 400 million dollars. So a small investment in the work of one of the world's political leaders - a small elegant touch to their business-portrait. Especially when you consider that the leader began with them.
Responding to questions from the press, Michael Zingarevich confirmed that he arrived at the auction is the work of his good friend, with whom they share a longstanding relationship. "We worked together" - somewhat obscurely he concluded. However, this is it is no secret that in 1993-1994, the future president served as the director of legal affairs Russo-Swiss society, "Ilim Pulp Enterprise", whose shareholders and to this day are taken Zingarevich and Zakhar Smushkin. They also Medvedev joined the founders of JSC "Fintsell", in the same group, they organized and AOZT Sibtrast. So their relationship was more than close.
Photo Tobolsk Kremlin, by the assurance of the buyer, will hang in his office, another work - "Regalia", written by world renowned artist Ivan Slavinsky (this year he was the chief designer of Christmas fairs), sold for two and a half million rubles, the acquirer donated to the center of the "House of Hope on the hill. There also will be used and 15 percent of all 81.5 million collected in the evening at aauktsione. The same number of direct and Children's Clinical Hospital № 5 named Filatov. The bulk - 70 percent - will be transferred to fund "debt" which supports veterans. It is expected that this money will be acquired modern equipment in the kitchen of the apartments, which are provided to veterans in the year of the 65th anniversary of Victory.

a good signal for the market picture and the price bracket.
And what is the signal?
President of Russia is keen on photography and at this price only bought his work ... that's if for this money bought the work ... completely unknown photographer ... so it would be a signal.
