On Thursday Russian Art Week will open in London. This is a major new event in the arts calendar in the United Kingdom. The project was set up by the online magazine Russian Art & Culture in conjunction with the major auction houses and galleries.
This weekend marks the start of Russian art week in London. Despite the double-dip recession in the UK the Russian market has remained buoyant. Most of the major auction houses are hosting sales of Russian paintings, icons, Fabergé and works of art.
