The famous Zolotoe Sechenie auction house located in Kyiv will hold the 'Editions' exhibition to present works by famous artists like Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso that usually aren't well-represented in Ukraine. Besides, September 27 will mark an art auction with even more famous names of the world of art.
The Editions exhibition will feature one of the most well-recognized works by Andy Warhol: 'Marilyn', depicting Marilyn Monroe in the artist's typical bright palette. Visitors will have a chance to witness a rare work by Salvador Dali, Inferno, which as the name hints is connected with Dante's Divine Comedy. Those interested in abstract art will be glad to see a composition by Wassily Kandinsky. A master of naïve art and modernism Marc Chagall will be presented at the exhibition as well.
