"He made it for love": The painting that Tatjana Moutevelidis brought to "Bares für Rares" was bought by her father because her mother liked it so much. After the breakup, he no longer wanted to hang it in his apartment And it doesn't go with his daughter's furnishings, so the 48-year-old from Cologne is now in Horst Lichter's studio.
Albert Maier provides more information about the picture. A young woman from Dachau can be seen on it, dressed in the traditional costume typical of the area. The white hood shows that the lady is still unmarried. The painting was created around 1900 to 1910, the painter was Hanna Linnenkugel.
Little is known about the artist, but that's not a problem for Maier: "Only the quality of the portrait speaks here." The expert also has good news for the price. Her father does not want to give away the picture for less than 250 euros, says the seller. Maier even estimates the value at 400 to 500 euros. That should work.
Tatjana Moutevelidis is already expected in the dealer's room: Daniel Meyer wants to know whether her grandmother is depicted in the painting. But even the hint that the lady portrayed is unknown does not stop the dealer from bidding for it: he starts with 140 euros. Walter "Waldi" Lehnertz raises to 200, increasing Meyer's bids. Initially, he does not want to offer more than 220 euros – a price for which Moutevelidis does not want to sell.
But then Waldi comes to the rescue and after the expertise. That finally gets things moving: Meyer increases his bid to 300 and is thus above the desired price. "Angel, now I've done everything I could do for you. Now get rid of that thing," Waldi exclaims happily. "Okay, well done," thanks the saleswoman. And Waldi goes one better: "I like to spend other money," he teases his colleague Meyer. "That's the most fun."
Afterwards, Tatjana Moutevelidis was delighted with the experience: "The squad is simply great," beamed the Cologne native.
