The Lavacow Going East Auction #40 was a thrill like no other. The auction had 70 lots on offer, 72% of which were sold, and it hit a record-breaking total of €345,000.

Among the delights of the evening was Adrian Ghenie's enigmatic Van Gogh which sold for €65,000 in an intense bidding battle of 27 steps. Geta Brătescu's breath-taking Vestige XXIII was sold for €15,000, against an estimate of €3,000- 5,000, after a bidding process of no less than 41 steps. The auction also reached new record prices for Andrei Cădere (Surreal Landscape, €26,000), Napoleon Tiron (Bone, €3200), and Gheorghe Berindei (The First Order, €1900).

The occasion was marked by Lavacow's first ever printed catalogue as well as the first of a series of international exhibitions, this time in London. We were astounded at the openness of the visitors, hundreds of people from all over the world, from Japan to New Zealand, willing to engage with the works of established and emerging Romanian contemporary artists.

Now that we are back home we are more inspired than ever to play a part in the worldwide promotion of Romanian contemporary art.
