The exhibition “Le Ballet” of the Russian artists Irina Malachkina and Anastasia Vostrezova opened in Bordeaux (France). Artworks presented at the exhibition, mainly graphics, recreates the atmosphere of the theater world, the ballet stage, and backstage area. First of all, the audience’s attention attracted to the realistic and high artistic culture of shown artworks. The feeling of nostalgia for the real art is clearly heard in the first entries in the guest book:

“Once there was dance…
All the magic and charm of classic ballet is passed on by the softness of pastels. The dynamism, brightness, and rhythm is passed through ink sketches.”  Liaissan.
.
“It is obvious that over time, modern art is becoming less and less thoughtful. Artistic creativity, in my opinion, is undergoing substantial degradation. Sometimes it seems that works in exhibitions are created by people who have not even mastered the basics of drawing. It is therefore particularly gratifying to see artworks of Russian artist Irene Malachkina and Anastasia Vostrezova. There is an excellent drawing technique. The general theme of ballet is exceptionally complicated, but in their paintings we see the real ballet life – on stage and behind the scenes. Irene’s and Anastasia’s artwork is like one more dance, that you do not get tired of admiring.”  Mark Kazarnovsky.
.

“Dear Anastasia! Regretting of your absence, I want to thank you for these beautiful dancers, you allow us to see.”  Dominique F.

Art World News

New York (CNN) — A pastel version of “The Scream” by Edvard Munch fetched nearly $120 million from an anonymous buyer Wednesday at Sotheby’s in New York, setting a new world record for a work of art sold at auction. Experts had expected the masterpiece to break new ground at the famed New York auction house; its presale estimate of at least $80 million was the highest ever listed at Sotheby’s. It sold for $119,922,500, which includes the premium paid to Sotheby’s. Previously, the most expensive artwork ever sold there was Pablo Picasso’s painting “Nude, Green Leaves, and Bust,” which brought in $106.5 million two years ago. The previous record for a Munch work of art was just over $38 million. The version of “The Scream” on the block Wednesday was one of four — two pastels and two paintings — executed between 1893 and 1910 and is one of the best-known images in modern art. It’s also the only version a private collector can get their hands on at public auction.
