Announcement of the auction ArtSale.info No. 90. Nesterova, Petrov, Sitnikov, Grositsky, Pivovarov, Burliuk and others. September 22–28, 2021

Pacifying, contemplative, sybaritic, philosophical Nesterova. The sun is setting. The evening descends. A couple looks out from the veranda at a cozy Mediterranean town, whose houses are scattered along the mountainside. Grapes and chopped walnuts are on the table. Much has been accomplished, and how much good is yet to come.

Announcement of the auction ArtSale.info No. 73. Krasnopevtsev, Pivovarov, Kropivnitsky, Zverev, Zhdanov, Ney, Chemiakine, Savko and others. May 26 — June 1, 2021

The master of metaphysical still life, Dmitry Krasnopevtsev, is today one of the most expensive artists of unofficial art. His auction record at the peak of the market was almost a million dollars. The philosophical basis of Krasnopevtsev's metaphysical still lifes is the idea of the frailty of the world and the desire for natural harmony, embodied in the equilibrium without symmetry.

Announcement of the auction ArtSale.info No. 47. Krasnopevtsev, Leonov, Pivovarov, Zelenine, Kuper, Purygin, Kazarin and others. November 11–17, 2020

What do we remember about Krasnopevtsev? This is a special artist — an artist outside the era. According to his quiet philosophical still lifes, no historian can determine that outside is the USSR, the time of “developed socialism”, all around are propaganda slogans and hypocritical films calling for the fight. And you will never think that the author of these inspired paintings works in the Soviet “Reklamfilm”, while he himself dreams of France, is friends with Svyatoslav Richter and George Kostaki and creates works that collectors will hunt for in 50 years.

Announcement of the auction ArtSale.info No. 46. Weisberg, Grositsky, Pivovarov, Sooster, Zverev, Goncharova, Lapchine and others. November 4–10, 2020

One of the favorite subjects of the Freudian, the ideologist of psychophysiology in painting, is nude in space. And, of course, the signature technique of the “Russian Morandi” is the immersion of a character or object in an atmosphere cleansed of everything superfluous. This watercolor has it all. The secret of whiteness. “Invisible” colors. Cold silence. And even the model's face in his system should not distract from immersion in this infinity. Weisberg is a phenomenally subtle colorist who works painstakingly and precisely.

Announcement of the auction ArtSale.info No. 35. Altman, Marevna, Shpindler, Nemukhin, Vorobyov, Pivovarov, Yankilevsky and others. August 19–25, 2020

The village of the Kiev province — Odessa — Vienna — Paris. A normal route for a talented and moderately ambitious provincial artist. Well, where else to go if not to the cultural capital of Europe? There, where Montmartre, the Salons of the Independent, favorite impressionists and progressive audiences who have seen a lot, and therefore are not inclined to obscurantism. Looking ahead, I will say that a miracle will happen. In a few years, yesterday's shoemaker himself will become a prominent participant in these salons. And his personal exhibition in Paris will be paid for by the famous Baron Rothschild himself.
