The painting “Nude with a fan”, signed by Theodor Pallady, the highest-rated work in this year’s first art auction, was sold, on Tuesday evening, during Casa Alis’s session, for RON 85,000, Agerpres reports.
The work, which was part of the poet and playwright Aurel Baranga’s collection, was auctioned at the starting price of RON 50,000 and went for RON 85,000, that is, over EUR 20,000.


On the other hand, another highly rated work, “On the seaside”, by Samuel Mutzner, estimated at RON 40,000, failed to draw a buyer. The painting “Boats and sailboat by the shore”, by Rudolf Negely, saw a spectacular rise, going for RON 19,000, from the starting price of RON 2,600. The paintings “Three peasant women”, by Rudolf Schweitzer Cumpana, and “Boats by the Danube shore”, by Constantin Artachino, also fetched high prices – RON 7,500 and, respectively, RON 7,000. The first auction organized this year by Casa Alis offered 78 paintings. Another important art auction house, GoldArt, has in store for this year’s first session, to take place on January 20, at the University Central Library’s Galateca Hall, a rich offer, of 107 paintings, but at slightly lower prices.
