The remnants of a Union of Russian Artists exhibition label (fig.2) suggest that the present lot was included in the 11th exhibition of the group, which took place in 1913-1914. According to the catalogue of the Moscow leg of the exhibition, Korovin showed 19 paintings, a number of which bore titles that could refer to this work, such as Night, Evening, or Street in the South, Evening.
Not seen in public for a century, the appearance of House in Gurzuf with a Candlelit Interior at auction is a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire a work from Korovin’s most coveted period, painted in his beloved Gurzuf which inspired so many of his best paintings.
