Dwie akwarele przypisane Wilhelmowi Kotarbińskiemu. Obie zostały opisane jako mające uszkodzenia (mechaniczne?), w obu papier został zbrązowiały (od słońca?), obie nie są sygnowane, dla każdej z nich cena rezerwowa została ustalona na 2,000 euro oraz każdej atrybucja została ustalona na podstawie innej akwareli Kotarbińskiego sprzedanej w Sotheby’s 10 lat temu za 12,500 funtów, pokazanej na dole wpisu. Trzeba teraz się przyjrzeć tej akwareli z Sotheby’s. Wygląda, że jest w dobrym stanie, jest sygnowana i to podwójnie i jest wykończoną dobrą kompozycją. Wracając do obu akwarel, żadna z nich nie wygląda na wykończoną pracę, raczej są to studia, dla obu brakuje słowa o proweniencji. Zastanawiam się czy aby na pewno obie malował Kotarbiński. Bardzo nie podobają mi się, choćby na jednej z nich, ręce Araba trzymającego dzban, wyglądające jak wielkie, nieforemne łopaty. W sumie, moim zdaniem jest to ryzykowna atrybucja dla tych dwóch prac…choć oczywiście szanuję odmienne zdanie innych osób.

Ekspert V. Petrov zawsze na miejscu i potwierdza autentyczność.

Dom aukcyjny winien pokazać owe pocztówki sprzed 1917roku by kupujący mogli sami osądzić jakie są różnice pomiędzy pracami . Ciekawe czy te dwie prace są replikami autorskimi czy też…. Wątpliwości za 50,000-70,000 funtów. Poza tym, pisanie o proweniencji jako ‘prywatnej kolekcji’, bez szczegółów jest żenujące.

Vasily Alexandrovich Kotarbinsky (1849-1921)
Vasily Alexandrovich Kotarbinsky was a Polish painter of the 19th and early 20th century. Kotarbinsky started his artistical career at the Warsaw School of Drawing in the 1870s, later he studied at the art academy in St. Petersburg. Very important for his development were several longer stays in Rome, which had a deep impact on his way of painting and his choice of subjects. He borrowed money from his family for his first trip to Rome during his education and stayed there for three years. Characteristic for his oeuvre are the depictions of biblical subjects as well as classical Roman themes and fantastic-mythical images. One of his main works are the frescos in the St. Vladimir Cathedral in Kiev. Works of the artist are in collections in St. Petersburg and Moscow.
