ABSURD: “VESUVIUS” WARHOL SET OF AUCTION IN THE SILENCE OF THE INSTITUTIONS.
VESUVIUS THE WORK OF ANDY WARHOL LEAVE NAPOLI
By: Ugo Leone a republica
So Vesuvius leaves.
Not one whose demise would breathe a sigh of relief to the Civil Protection and the many (too many) citizens residentinell’area.
No. In fact he goes, or, at least, has packed up the “Vesuvius” painted by Andy Warhol
thirty years ago and that its owner, Ernesto Esposito, has decided to put up for auction at Sotheby’s on 15 October.
Sorry; but if one needs money generally it begins with the surrender of the family jewels, and no one can be opposed. The prices of the starting piece is
three million Euros.
Esposito does not mean that it sells for a penny less, but it is clear that
It will derive much more: that auction would be otherwise.
But really it was not there and there is nothing to do for “Vesuvius” and perl’intero prestigious Ernesto Esposito lot that will be auctioned?
There are organizations and institutions, dealing in advance with the owner, they can propose an agreement on a figure legitimately profitable this heritage of art that allows him to stay, rather than come to Naples?
The 61 works that will be auctioned in London with “Vesuvius” leader and that probably will be bought by different purchasers, are assets that would be too painful to see dismembered while an agreement such as the one I expressed the hope that it could maintain its unification and, maybe, allow the permanent exhibition at a site in Naples: the mother, for example.
