Over 250 works became part of the national collection and entered the permanent exposition of the Pompidou Center. The list of artists and their works was approved by several commissions and the Pompidou director Bernard Blesten.

Of course, the Pompidou stamp is an important touch, confirming the high level of contemporary Russian art. One more peak is conquered!

This underlines the status of the works presented at the auction».
