THE RUSSIAN REVIVAL OF EARLY 2000 GAVE WAY NOW BUT I AM NOT SURE THAT IT WONT COME BACK STRONGER.

THUS, MY ADVICE TO INVEST IN RUSSIAN ART NOW AS IT IS AT A REALISTIC LEVELS AND ALLOWS HOPE FOR BETTER DAYS AND INVESTMENT RETURNS OF MENTION IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

GENRE PAINTINGS ARE NOT OUT OF FASHION

IT SEEMS TO MOST OF US THAT CONTEMPORARY ART IS JUST ABOUT ABSTRACT PAINTINGS AND ABOUT PICASSO OR MONTIGLIANI. THERE IS ANOTHER PICTURE PAINTED BY ARTISTS WHO REMAINED CLOSE TO CLASSICAL DEPICTION OF THINGS AND THEIR ART IS STILL VALUABLE AND IN THE MILLIONS. OF COURSE THERE IS MALEVICH WHO SOLD FOR 85 MILLION DOLLARS IN NEW YORK WITH HIS ABSTRACT ART BUT ALSO HOCKNEY WHO SOLD FOR THIRTY MILLION DOLLARS PLUS OTHERS.

THUS, MY SHORT ARTICLE TODAY ON GENRE ART AND IMAGES THAT SPEAK TO ME AND MANY MORE PEOPLE OF THE SAME BACKGROUND AND COMPOSITION OF PSYCHE!!

TWO IMAGES BY  ANTONIS ANDREADIS 1948-2008) , LONG GONE NOW,  BUT HIS ART STANDS IN GOOD STEAD FOR HIM AND HIS GREEK HEART AND SOUL!!

 

 

 

 

 

WEATHER A PEASANT WOMAN MAKES BREAD OR TWO OLD PEOPLE COMPOSE MUSIC WITH TRADITIONAL ORGANS MAKES THE HEART FLOAT TO THE ORIGINS OF ALL OF US, DOWN TO EARTH PEOPLE!! 

BREAD AND MUSIC!!
