Russian Fine & Decorative Art

No other auction house features such an expansive repertoire of Russian fine and decorative art as Shapiro Auctions. This is because unlike many auction houses who sell Russian art from time to time, we make Russian art a major focus of our auctions. We are Russian speakers, familiar with not only the art but the culture of Russian buyers.

Our expertise consists of artwork spanning the entirety of Russian history, from 16th century icons to 19th century old masters, Soviet Era and dissident artists to contemporary figures, with names like David Burliuk, Oleg Tselkov, Gavril Kondratenko, Nicholas Roerich, Ivan Aivazovsky, Konstantin Makovsky, Dmitri Plavinsky, and works by the Imperial Porcelain Company and Fabergé.
