The Russians are coming to New York! From April 21, 2010 to April 23, 2010, 600 lots of Russian art will be coming to market. Sotheby's will be auctioning 359 of them, including several by Pavel Tchelitchew, from actress Ruth Ford's collection. Also going under the blog are pieces by Stanislaw Zukowski, Nicolas Kalmakoff and Vladimir Davidovic Baranov-Rossine.
