Upcoming Auctions & Exhibitions
Our biannual sales of Russian Pictures and Russian Works of Art held in London in June and November cover the full spectrum of Russian art, from icons to contemporary, via 19th century paintings, Fabergé, Imperial and Soviet porcelain, and non-official Soviet art.
In addition to our two London sale seasons, this autumn we will be holding an online-only sale, Escape Artists 2.0: The Non-Conformists Online. The sale is dedicated to Soviet-era artists who trod the fine line between ‘official’ and ‘non-official’ art from the 1950s onwards and many of whom emigrated to Europe and the USA.
Sotheby’s has unparalleled access to collectors thanks to a global network of specialists based in London, New York and Paris, a dedicated Russian desk in our Private Client Group and a long-established presence in Moscow, where we regularly hold preview exhibitions. In 2017, we celebrated the ten-year anniversary of our Moscow office, the first of any international auction house to open in Russia.
