The Russian Art sale brings together a curated selection of paintings and works on paper by leading artists from the 18th to the 21st century, as well as Russian works of art, including Fabergé, jewellery, enamels, silver, Imperial and Soviet porcelain. Highlights from the Russian paintings section include a group of exquisite works by Sergei Chekhonin which feature a portrait of Leo Tolstoy, an impressionistic early canvas by Konstantin Korovin, and a moonlit seascape by Ivan Aivazovsky. The Works of Art section is led by an important private collection of Russian enamels, a rare model of a dormouse by Fabergé and a monumental bronze sculpture of Mephistopheles by Mark Antokolsky.

This season, we are delighted to present the Russian Art auction alongside an important sale of A Selection of Fabergé Masterpieces from the Harry Woolf Collection, offering some of the best examples of Fabergé craftsmanship ever to appear on the market. Both sales will take place on 29 November in London. A Selection of Fabergé Masterpieces from the Harry Woolf Collection is led by a rare study of wild strawberries, a famous jewelled mosaic brooch, and an enamelled gold bonbonnière in the form of a doge’s hat.
