And for the second time a major participant in the auction was the elegant brunette in named Natalia, who came to the auction with my daughter and son. She famously parted with millions of rubles, buying paintings, collectable wine, and other art objects.

At one point Natalie was a little distracted by talking on the phone, wernick immediately said: “No you can’t do it!”. Put the phone away from your ear, the philanthropist smiled: “the kids and I talked.” A few minutes later in a bitter struggle she had acquired the porcelain manufactory PlancPaon hand painted in art Deco style on the sketches by Leon Bakst for 2 million rubles, what Khrustalev joked: “the Kids of today the Railways just do not get it!”.
