“This is an antique.
The original is lost, destroyed, destroyed,” Mr. Karpov said.
The collection of paintings, sculptures and other objects from the 18th and 19th centuries is among the world’s largest, but many of them have long been lost.
“A lot of them are in the trash, some of them in the garbage, but a lot of these objects are still valuable and in good condition,” he said.
One of the paintings, which Mr. Kirpa says he has been keeping in his bedroom for several years, is “Abandoning” by Johann Georg Friedrich Georg Friedrich Schiller.
Mr. Schiller’s artworks were among the first paintings by German artist Johann Georg, and it was painted in 1815, the same year he created the first “Aristotelian” painting, “Elegant.”
The exhibition, which runs until June 18, includes a collection of “artistic treasures” including one that is valued at $20 million and will go to a private buyer in the coming months.
“It’s a treasure trove of art that has been neglected,” Mr Karpowksi said.
“The most valuable thing is the art.
The most important thing is to preserve it.”
