俄羅斯男子宣稱達文西『真跡』作品在拍賣網站Avito上以7200萬歐元的價格出售

 

賣家說,這幅名為“穿著毛皮的年輕女孩”的畫作由斯德哥爾摩藝術評估公司Atelje Catellani認證。

一位俄羅斯男子以超過7200萬歐元的價格在Avito(一家類似於eBay的俄羅斯分類廣告網站)上刊登廣告出售李奧納多達文西的“真實”作品。這位來自加里寧格勒州Mamonovo鎮的“Dmitry”宣稱,這幅名為“穿著毛皮的年輕女孩”的畫作由斯德哥爾摩藝術評估公司Atelje Catellani認證,且他已經找到買家。他並於8月1日在預拍賣的繪畫旁,張貼了認證文件的照片。

在將畫作發佈到Avito上四天之後,廣告上寫著:「注意:我正在銷售達文西的真跡畫作《穿著毛皮的女孩》,地點:德國,估價:2.8億歐元,要價:7200萬歐元。」

但當被問及為什麼他選擇在網路上而不是通過拍賣行拍賣這幅畫時,Dmitry回答:“為什麼你們會覺得這樣做很奇怪?我能透過Avito賣掉它。“他也拒絕解釋是如何擁有這幅畫,為什麼畫在德國以及買主是誰等相關問題。

藝術評估公司Atelje Catellani的發言人說:「沒有人被授權出示這幅畫。委託並不存在;也沒有人接觸過這幅畫。」透過電子郵件,該公司表示無權發表任何進一步的訊息。

達文西的Salvator Mundi於2017年在紐約佳士得拍賣行以4.5億美元的價格而成為世界上最昂貴的畫作。

Dmitry在Avito上拍賣的其他商品,像是專案管理專業認證和一套電子書等,拍賣時間都以過期。

A Russian man claims he sold a genuine Leonardo da Vinci painting through a classified ads site for €72 million.

A Russian man who advertised a “genuine” work by Leonardo da Vinci on Avito (a Russian classified ads site similar to eBay) for more than €72m says that he has found a buyer. “Dmitry”, from the town of Mamonovo in the Kaliningrad region, says that the painting, titled A Young Girl in Furs, was authenticated by the Stockholm art valuation firm Atelje Catellani. He posted photos of the accompanying documentation alongside the painting on 1 August.

Before its removal, four days after it was posted on Avito, the advert read: “Attention: I am selling the original Leonardo da Vinci painting ‘A Girl in Furs’. Location: Germany… estimated value €280m… asking price €72m.”

Asked why he was advertising the painting online instead of through an auction house, Dmitry said: “Why do you find it so strange? I was able to sell it through Avito.”

He refused to explain how he came to own the work, why it is in Germany and who the buyer is.

A spokesman for Atelje Catellani says: “There is nobody entitled to offer the painting. A mandate does not exist; nobody has access to the painting.” The email went on to say that the firm was not entitled to share any further information.

Da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi became the world’s most expensive painting when it sold for $450m at Christie’s in New York in 2017.

Dmitry’s only other ads on Avito—offering materials for project management professional certification and a set of e-books—have now expired.
