In the last decade, London has emerged as the global epicenter of Russian art. This growing demand for Russian art is in direct proportion to the ever increasing wealth of Russian buyers. Bonhams Russian Art department caters to this rapidly evolving market with two sales a year in London, each carefully curated to include among the finest Russian paintings and works of art in the auction world.

The market for superlative Russian paintings and works of art is particularly buoyant. Demand is exceptionally high for works from private collections that demonstrate an excellent provenance and are fresh to the art market. Our specialists in London and New York have experience, training and dedication and work as one international team to provide exceptional customer service and to offer their professional advice to both buyers and sellers. Their efforts have resulted in building record-breaking sales and achieving an unprecedented increase in new consignors and buyers from across the globe. In the past few years the Russian Art department has achieved exceptional sale results for works by 19th and early 20th century artists, such as Robert Falk, Nicholas and Svetoslav Roerich, Natalia Goncharova, Alexander Volkov, Vasilii Polenov, Nikolai Fechin, Konstantin Makovsky, and Zinaida Serebryakova among others.

As a result of Bonhams commitment to our relationships with both private collectors and public institutions in Russia and Europe, as well as our reputation for achieving auction success for masterpieces of Russian Art, our auctions provide the best opportunity to expose and sell important works to a truly global audience.
