Over the last few years, the ‘Russian sales'' in London and New York have been considered to be one of the most important social and cultural events. Auctions sell Russian art for millions of dollars, witnessing every year a tremendous increase in the amount of potential buyers. The situation at the market for Russian art is surprising, however it was completely different merely a decade ago.

This book will help to answer such questions as “Who sells Russian art at the Western art market?”, “Who buys the Russian art?”, and “What influences the price growth?”.
