Russian painting sold for € 600,000

The painting was auctioned at auction house Bukowski. The final bid was twice as high as the starting price.

The work, painted by Bogolyubov in 1870, was sold to a Russian bidder.

Less than two weeks ago another auction house in Helsinki, Hagelstam, also did good business, when a painting by Finnish realist painter Eero Järnefelt (1863-1937) changed owners for 630,000 euros.
