Over the past decade, the market for Russian pictures has experienced phenomenal growth, and continues to be very dynamic. Since the early 200's this sector has been dominated by Russian collectors, passionate about their native culture and looking to acquire paintings which have for decades been hidden in private collections in Europe and America. More recently, however, new collectors are emerging from further afield in the CIS (territories of the Former Soviet Union), the Middle East and China.
