Новости аукционов: продана картина из Музея Израиля


Картина импрессиониста Камиля Писсаро «Бульвар Монмартр. Весеннее утро» продана на аукционе Sotheby's, прошедшем в Лондоне вечером в среду, 5 февраля, за 19,9 миллиона фунтов стерлингов (24 миллиона евро), сообщается на сайте аукционного дома. Таким образом, «Бульвар Монмартр» установил новый аукционный рекорд цены на работы Писсаро. Предыдущий рекорд цены на картины Писсаро был превзойден в пять раз, подчеркнули в Sotheby's. «Бульвар Монмартр» (Boulevard Montmartre, Matinee de Printemps), написанный в 1897 году, входил в коллекцию известного еврейского промышленника Макса Зильбергера, конфискованную нацистами. Наследникам Зильбергера картина Писсаро была возвращена в 2000 году. До начала торгов «Бульвар Монмартр» планировали продать лишь за 7—10 миллионов фунтов стерлингов.

It was originally owned by Max Silberberg a Jewish industrialist based in Breslau whose legendary collection of 19th and 20th century art included major works by leading names such as Corot, Courbet, Degas, Van Gogh and Manet. Between 1935 and 1937, Silberberg’s collection was dispersed in a series of forced sales (or “Jewish auctions” as they were known), and soon after he and his wife Johanna were deported, first to Grüssau, and later to Theresienstadt and then Auschwitz where they perished. Thanks perhaps to a secret deal struck between Max and the authorities, Max and Johanna’s only son Alfred was released from Buchenwald concentration camp in 1938. He and his wife Gerta fled to England soon after, finding employment as a butler and a cook respectively. Alfred Silberberg died in 1984. Some 16 years later, Boulevard Montmartre, matinée de printemps was restituted to Gerta. The painting had by then found its way into the collection of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, and in recognition of the museum’s collaborative and exemplary approach, Gerta loaned the the painting back to the museum where it remained on display until her death earlier this year.
