Bonhams and Sotheby’s sprzedają prace Jana Lebensteina, trzy figury osiowe (olej i dwa rysunki)  z tej samej kolekcji, państwa Lincer. Spora okazja dla tych, którzy cenią sobie bezkompromisowych malarzy o prostym kręgosłupie. Brak jakichkolwiek powiązań z czerwoną ideologią przekłada się do tej pory na niskie ceny jego prac. Kolejne pokolenia czerwonych krytyków trzymają się dobrze razem.
