WE SOLD A 19th century portrait for $215,000 us
The 19th century portrait "A Girl in Kokoshnik by a Well" was a part of the Russian Imperial Academy of Arts collection until 1917, later, after that year, it was considered lost. Between 1999 and 2001 Tamoikins family was able to locate and purchase this painting from a private collector in Europe. The portrait suffered significant damage over the years and was in need of extensive restoration. In 2006 Tamoikin Museum legalized, restored and imported the painting back to the Russian Federation. That same year the artwork was sold for $215,000 US to the Moscow State Department’s representative. The value of the painting was determined by Technology TES.
