This dedicated sale of Soviet-era art is being held in London on 28 November to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution. It includes examples from the earliest years of the Soviet Union up until 1991, covering the avant-garde, state-sponsored Socialist Realism and unofficial art of the post-War period, and demonstrating the surprising diversity of the USSR’s artistic output. Led by a group of three works from the collection of Raymond and Susan Johnson, the highlight of the sale is Alexander Deineka’s large-scale Coal Miner. Click ahead to see this and more highlights.
