Russian Sale

I must admit I'd never heard of MacDougall’s auction house until today. Founded in 2004, it has become one of the three world leaders in Russian art at auction and now holds a quarter of the global market. Russian mafiosi wondering where to invest their cash need look no further. This Reclining Nude (1902) by Mikhail Larionov comes up in MacDougall’s London auction on 26 November, estimated at £1,500,000 – £2,000,000 (CLICK). I noticed one of my favourite landscape artists in the sale: Ivan Shishkin's Pine Forest (Sukhostoi) from 1897. If you haven't seen Shishkin's beautiful landscapes, look him up in Google images.
