With the work Princess / 32 panels , the young Roumanian artist, Alexandru BUNESCU (born 1988) created by far the largest work that sold at auction during our reference period. Consisting of 32 panels Princess/32 panels is no less than 20 meters long! The auction house Artmark, which supports the artist, was not oblivious to the commercial and publicity interest that this record format represented and it promoted the canvas as the star of its sale with a very optimistic estimate of USD 70,000 – 85,000. This huge pastel representing a life-size train nevertheless sold (but well below the estimation) for USD  50,000! – The largest paintings (January 2011 – May 2012) – Artprice – THE WORLD LEADER IN ART MARKET INFORMATION

A giant pastel entitled Princess by the young Romanian artist Alexandru BUNESCU (born 1988) already ranked among the top 10 results for Drawings by artists under 35 after it fetched $50,000 at Artmark in Bucharest on 13 April 2011. The same result gives the artist second place in this under-30 ranking. In both rankings Bunescu is followed by the American artist Tauba AUERBACH, who plays with our optic nerves in elegant and methodical compositions. – 30 under 30: drawing , Artprice – THE WORLD LEADER IN ART MARKET INFORMATION

In the second place in the ranking of graphic artists under 30 years – Romanians Alexandru Bunescu. We have already mentioned it a giant, 20-foot work, “Princess,” which is a train composed of 32 panels, an image in full size. In the ranking of the greatest works of art at auction for 2011 – the first half of 2012, this work won first place. In the current ranking, Bunescu  goes second – with the same “Princess”, sold in Bucharest Artmark auction for 50.6 thousand dollars. – artinvestment.ru

„Princess” may persist in the history of art as the largest painting in the world that has ever been on public sale. But for now, it surely can be included in the Guinness World Records. – ProTV Romania
