Russian Art Week

If you're into Russian or Greek Orthodox icons, the Willow Gallery in London will be showing 60 important pieces gathered by Jan Morsink Ikonen of Amsterdam, mainly from private collections. It's part of Russian Art Week in London, which takes place from 22 to 29 November. Major auction houses Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Bonhams and MacDougall’s will join together to present a series of Russian sales in London (CLICK). Shown is Saint Aleksei (1904). Don't ask me why he carries a furled pink parasol. Maybe he's showing his feminine side. I suppose it could be a souvenir from his cross-dressing days. I must admit I find these icons predictable and boring. CLICK for more info.
