MacDougall's Russian Art Auction on 4 June 2014 will feature important works by key figures of the Russian avant-garde, including Robert Falk, Pavel Kuznetsov, Mikhail Larionov, Natalia Goncharova and many others. Some of the top lots have just returned from Moscow where they were shown with great success.
Particular highlights include Robert Falk's double-sided composition Boy with a Cap Sitting on a Chair, which promises to be one of the sensations of London's June Russian sales. Also included is Pavel Kuznetsov's Eastern City. Bukhara, the most important and best-known canvas from his celebrated Central Asian series of 1912-15. The celebrated artistic couple Mikhail Larionov and Natalia Goncharova will be particularly well represented.
There will be a number of unique works presented at the Works of Art, Fabergé and Icons sale, including a masterpiece of enamel craftsmanship by the workshop of Pavel Ovchinnikov, and some unusual examples of iconography from the 17th century to the Revolution of 1917
