This time the auction adopted a new format – along with live sales, that took place on the 12th of October, "quiet" bids were accepted during the pre-auction exhibition from the 7th to the 12th of October. Co-owner of the "Golden Section" auction house Aleksey Vasylenko notes: "It is interesting, that most of the items were sold at the "quiet" auction. Notably, the collectors were especially active in the "quiet" sales. In this mode, for example, were sold the paintings of young Ukrainian artists Zoya Orlova ($1 100) and Anton Logov ($660).
