The article focuses on the painting "The Music Lesson: The 1925 Work of Avant-Garde Russian Alexandra Exter," by Russian artist Alexandra Exter, which has been reworked upon. It is now expected to fetch more price than the price for which it was sold in an auction in 1993. Due to this, auctioneers Deutscher-Menzies, from wealthy Russian collectors have been making assaults on London and New York art markets. It will be auctioned on March 13 at the Sofitel Wentworth in Sydney, New South Wales.
