Since Sotheby's Moscow office opened in May 2007, located just steps away from Red Square on Romanov Pereulok (Business Centre "Romanov Dvor"), it has become a valuable resource for assisting our Russia-based and international clients, including those in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the Ukraine and the Caucasian and Central Asian countries. But Sotheby's history in Russia began as early as 1988 with a groundbreaking sale of Avant-Garde and Soviet Art that realised more than £2 million (USD $3,074,600). After a fifteen-year period during which the Russian Art market grew at an unprecedented rate, Sotheby's held its first auction of Russian Art at Sotheby's London in 2002. What was an annual auction has now increased in frequency to four auctions each year devoted solely to Russian Art. View a post-sale report from London's most recent Russian Art sales, which realised an impressive total of £16,668,350 (USD $26,141,976).
Sotheby's Moscow offers comprehensive services for clients worldwide, including several travelling exhibitions and at least one event in Kiev each year. Our staff welcomes the opportunity to assist you with all your purchasing and buying needs regardless of where you might live. We are able to assist you if you have questions regarding buying or selling, or wish to have an object from your collection valued. We provide estimates and insurance valuations for all collecting categories and are happy to answer any questions about upcoming sales, facilitating absentee bids or arranging for the shipment of consigned or purchased property.
At present, we are actively seeking consignments in all collecting areas for inclusion in Sotheby's upcoming sales worldwide.
