Chapter 93 How shameless!
But to her surprise, the staff told her, “Sorry, Miss Mu, Gu Qing Yu’s painting has already been auctioned off, and the other party took it away directly.”
Artists also had to live, and many of the paintings that won prizes in this competition had actually been bid on earlier during the exhibition. The best sellers were the first prize winners, with Gu Qing Yu’s painting fetching a high six-figure price.
However, in previous years, the paintings in the oil painting category usually fetched a maximum of five figures, after all, the participants were all newcomers and not well established artists.
But Gu Qing Yu’s painting was so eye-catching that several big spenders bid over 100,000 yuan and the bidder who finally won Gu Qing Yu’s painting bid several times more than the 100,000 most people had bid at 990,000 yuan.
It seemed that the other party just didn’t want to be conspicuous with a price over seven figures, but had had to take her painting
“Who was it?”
Mu Ai’s face twisted with anger. Her painting had also been auctioned off and fetched a high price of 150,000 yuan, which was a very high price for a new artist. If it wasn’t because she had won the first place this time, her painting would normally cost just a few thousand to ten thousand yuan in a gallery, however she had never cared about things like price, after all she was just learning to paint. Her family just wanted her to nurture some interest in art in order for her to appear more elegant.
As the daughter of the Mu family, she didn’t lack money at all.
But now, it was different.
Especially after knowing that her painting only fetched 150,000 yuan while Gu Qing Yu’s painting fetched 990,000!
She couldn’t wait to rip Gu Qing Yu and the person who had bought her painting apart!
No, it was just a painting that had won the first prize, it couldn’t have fetched such a huge sum. Gu Qing Yu and the person who bought the painting must have teamed up, they were just trying to hype her painting to make Gu Qing Yu’s value soar!
Mu Ai gritted her teeth, her pretty face twisting up a little.
The staff swallowed, “Miss Mu, we are not allowed to disclose the privacy of our clients…..”
At that, Mu Ai glared at him fiercely, snorted coldly and turned to leave.
No matter, she had other ways to find out…..
The staff breathed a sigh of relief, wiping the cold sweat from his forehead.
He was lucky, very lucky that this Miss Mu was from the capital and that he would never see her again in his life.
Such a capricious young lady was too difficult to handle.
On the other side, Gu Qing Yu learned that her painting had sold for a whopping 990,000 yuan. Although the tax on the painting was very high, she was surprised that it had sold for such a high price. She now had more money to rebuild her smart brain.
She was all smiles as she related this news, but Bai Xiuqi was a little surprised. He had also taken part in many similar international competitions and had even won first prize, but new works never sold for such a high price. They usually only went for a hundred or two hundred thousand which was considered high. 990,000 though…..
Bai Xiuqi looked at Mu Xuan Qing oddly, but Mu Xuan Qing remained calm and collected, seemingly not hearing Gu Qing Yu’s words, or noticing his gaze. If it wasn’t because he had watched him grow up and knew him well, Bai Xiuqi wouldn’t have been able to tell that Mu Xuan Qing was fidgeting.
It seems his eldest disciple really liked his little sister’s work. He even paid 990,000 for it but didn’t let anyone know about it…
