On December 13-17, 2007 Armenian-born painter Hrachya Harutiunian who resides in Moscow, exhibited his paintings at ART MANEZH which was held at Moscow’s Manezh Exhibiton Center. Like last year’s show, Mr Harutiunian’s was sponsored by the Hellevig, Klein & Usov law firm, and by Avenir.
ART MANEZH is one of Russia’s biggest public art exhibitions, including amateurs and professionals. Several hundred Russian artists exhibited their works. Now that it has been confirmed that there are more than 100,000 millionaires in Russia, interest in art is continually increasing. As a result, art prices in general have been appreciating at a rate several times that of inflation.
