“Stolen” Repin treasure Azarov was cheap and uninteresting for collectors


At the peak of the prices for similar work, the picture is worth 3 thousand dollars.

The lawyer of ex-Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov has accused the police in the kidnapping of the original painting by Ilya Repin and replaced with a fake. TSN asked the expert gallery “Nu Art” in which this painting was exhibited at the auction.

It turned out that the biggest value among collectors work “the Church in hrushivka” has not found a buyer. It was auctioned off in 2008 for 3 thousand dollars. However, the auction did not take place because no one was interested. The picture was returned to the owner.

Now the gallery does not know about the fate of the painting. Note that now it can cost even less, since in 2008 there was a peak of prices for graphics Repin.

The expert says that exhibited in the photos it is difficult to assess the authenticity of the paintings. However, it is very similar to that exhibited at the auction.
