7 Jun 2017
London, New Bond Street

LONDON – Fox Hunt by Dmitri Stelletsky (1875-1947) doubled its high estimate at Bonhams Russian Sale yesterday (Wednesday 7 June), achieving £257,000 against an estimate of £100,000-120,000.

Three further works by the artist including The Stag Hunt (£68,750), and The Dawn and the Dusk (£62,500) also proved popular with collectors.

Daria Chernenko, Bonhams Head of Russian Art said, "The Stelletsky works were very special and I am not surprised they achieved such impressive results. Fierce bidding between bidders, on the phone and in the room, reflected the strength of the Russian Art market and the growing interest in works by this most enigmatic of Russian artists."

Elsewhere in the sale, a rare Imperial porcelain presentation tête-à-tête service, Imperial Porcelain Factory, period of Alexander II, also exceeded expectations, achieving £112,500 against an estimate of £50,000-70,000.
