Paintings of the famous Petersburgers.

A Christmas charitable auction took place at St. Petersburg
during the First Christmas fair. They put up for tender the paintings made by famous St. Petersburg people under the supervision of a well known “Mitky’s” artist Dmitry Shagin.
During the January holydays every participant of this action came to the main Fair scene at Art Square to paint a picture dedicated to one of the Russian alphabet’s letters. All the lots were estimated in 10 000 rubles.

The painting of Valentina Matvienko “Hedgehog under the pine” became the highlight of the auction. After a great fight for this picture it was sold for 2 110 000 to Sergey Golikov, the “Maxidom” company general director. Also he bought the painting of Alisa Frejndlih for 134 000.

Also were successfully sold: “The giant wearing valenky” of the St. Petersburg Academic Philharmonic Hall art director Yuri Temirkanov (22 000 rubles), the work of The Culture Committee chief Nikolay Burov (24 500) and the picture of a designer Vladimir Buhinnik (32 000).

The main point of the auction is that all the profit will be given to the municipal child hospitals.
