Russian Art Week: Summer 2020

Russian Art Week

Russian Art Week was launched by RA+C in 2011 and takes place twice a year, in autumn and spring, coinciding with major sales of Russian Art at Sotheby’s, Christie’s, MacDougall’s and Bonhams. It is an exclusive network which covers all the sales as well as Eastern Europe and Russia-related exhibitions and events held in London during the same period. This summer due to COVID-19 pandemic the Russian Art Week has changed its format. The Russian art sales will still take place online and will spread over late spring and summer.

James Butterwick, London art dealer and an expert in Russian art, has reviewed the sales – read his article here. You can also read James article about the first two sales’ results at Sotheby’s and Macdougall’s here.
