Makeup determines how a woman is perceived



A unique collection of Russian art, collected by the recently deceased musician Mstislav Rostropovich and his wife, singer Galina Vishnevskaya, was entirely acquired by one buyer - this was announced on Monday by the London auction house Sotheby's. It was about this outcome that experts warned before the start of trading. As it became known, the collection was acquired by an entrepreneur close to the Kremlin circles, billionaire Alisher Usmanov. As a result, the auction for the sale of this unique collection, which was planned for September 18 and 19, was canceled. The auction house refused to name the new owner of the collection. However, according to a representative of Sotheby's, the message about the buyer will be made public on Tuesday, September 18, in Moscow. It is expected that the press briefing in the Atrium hall of the Baltschug-Kempinski Hotel will be attended by Galina Vishnevskaya, the head of Roskultura Mikhail Shvydkoy, as well as the head of Sotheby's Russia-CIS Mikhail Kamensky. Previously, it has been suggested that the entire collection can be bought by one of the wealthy Russians. With almost 100 percent certainty, we can say that the collection was acquired by the famous Russian entrepreneur Alisher Usmanov, who recently bought the rights to the collection of legendary Soviet cartoons from the American company Films by Jove, after which he donated them to the children's TV channel Bibigon, created by the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company. According to representatives of the auction house, the new owner is going to transport the collection to Russia. With reference to Galina Vishnevskaya, representatives of Sotheby's said that "the entire collection was acquired by the new owner, who intends to transfer it to Russia." According to Mikhail Kamensky, head of Sotheby's in Russia and the CIS, "the buyer's intention is to make this collection a museum." It also became known that the amount paid for Rostropovich's collection is "much higher" than its highest estimates established by the experts of the trading house. And this despite the fact that experts previously estimated the collection in the range of 26-40 million US dollars. Galina Vishnevskaya said last week that all the proceeds from the collection will go to charity - to the maintenance of funds: a family (Rostropovich-Vishnevskaya) and a medical fund to help children "In the name of the health and future of children in Russia." 450 lots of fine and applied Russian art of the XVIII-XX centuries, previously located in the Paris and London apartments of musicians, were put up for sale. According to Vishnevskaya, the collection, consisting of furniture, dishes, porcelain, works of art, she and her husband collected for 30 years. Moreover, not a single item in Russia was bought by the spouses, all the masterpieces were purchased at auctions in different countries of the world. Some Russian museums showed interest in items from the Rostropovich-Vishnevskaya collection, but it is unlikely that our museums would be able to buy the entire collection - most of it would have settled in private collections in the West. The Rostropovich-Vishnevskaya collection contains truly unique items. In particular, experts highlight the portrait of Aurora Demidova by Karl Bryullov (preliminary estimate of 1.6-3 million dollars), "Faces of Russia" by Boris Grigoriev (preliminary estimate of 3-4 million dollars), the portrait of Praskovya Bestuzheva Borovikovsky, which was estimated by the organizers of the auction at 400-600 thousand pounds sterling. One of the most important lots was Nicholas Roerich's painting "The Treasure of Angels". The estimated value of the work acquired by Rostropovich and Vishnevskaya at Sotheby's auction in 1998 for 287.5 thousand pounds ranged from 800 thousand to 1.2 million pounds. From the arts and crafts, a snuffbox presented by Catherine II to Grigory Orlov stood out (preliminary estimate of 300-400 thousand dollars). Scientists from the United States and Great Britain have found that makeup is the main factor by which others evaluate a woman. So, the "painted" ladies were evaluated as intellectuals, but they were cated with caution, not trusted. The less makeup was on the face, the more sincere the woman seemed, but she frankly lost in assessing her intellectual abilities. Scientists advise to adhere to the golden mean in this matter. In any case, makeup should be neat and adequate to the situation.
