Edgar Degas. Dancers at the bar
Original   Auto-Translated
В 1912 году умер Анри Руар, художник, инженер, изобретатель, близкий друг Эдгара Дега. Распродажа его коллекции современной живописи станет легендарным событием. До сих пор картины, собранные Руаром в личную коллекцию, были доступны только близким друзьям. И вдруг наследники заявляют об аукционе. Посмотреть на коллекцию приходят французские художники и писатели, о ней пишет вся парижская пресса. Марсель Пруст сокрушается в письме к другу, что не сможет попасть на аукцион. Съезжаются директора музеев и коллекционеры из разных стран.
За личную коллекцию Руара, которая собиралась несколько десятков лет, при покупке стоила сущие копейки, будет выручена баснословная по тем временам сумма - больше 5,5 миллионов франков. А картина «Танцовщицы у станка» Эдгара Дега побьет все возможные рекорды для картин художников, приданных при их жизни. За нее заплатят 435 тысяч франков!
