Christie’s was honoured and felt privileged to be able to hold a second exhibition at the Tretyakov Gallery - a Treasury of Russian Art and one of the leading museums of the world. In 2007, Christie’s exhibited Vasily Vereshchagin’s “Solomon’s Wall” for the first time in Russia at the Tretyakov Gallery. 2016 marks Christie’s 250th anniversary and will be celebrated with a series of events and exhibitions throughout this historic year for the company. Within our 250th year, Christie’s also celebrates 10 Years in Dubai in March and 30 Years in Asia in May, two landmark anniversaries for these geographies. As the world’s leading art business, Christie’s has continued to be recognised as tastemakers in the art market, continually innovating its sales and works on offer to best suit collectors globally, all this since over two centuries. Christie’s was the first international auction house to bring Pre-Raphaelite art to Russia, and this has been the result of the good and longstanding relationship with the Tretyakov Gallery, and we are grateful for all their support in the past, and, hopefully, in the future.

InArtis Gallery presented a show of 34 engravings created by the famous British Pre-Raphaelite artists Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris from October 14 through December 14 2010 in the Old English Courtyard in Moscow. The exhibition was noteworthy not only because it showcased a school rarely seen in Moscow - in Russia exhibitions of the Pre-Raphaelites’ artwork are rare - but also because viewers had the chance to see a collection of engravings that for a long time were believed to have been lost forever.

THE ART OF THE PRE-RAPHAELITES HAS LONG BEEN A FOCUS OF INTEREST IN RUSSIA. EARLY IN THE 20TH CENTURY LEADING RUSSIAN ART CRITICS AND CONNOISSEURS OF EUROPEAN ART WOULD COMPLAIN BITTERLY THAT THE PUBLIC IN MOSCOW AND ST. PETERSBURG HAD NO CHANCE TO SEE THE WORK OF THE ENGLISH ARTISTS. A CENTURY LATER THE LANDMARK TATE BRITAIN EXHIBITION "PRE-RAPHAELITES: VICTORIAN AVANT-GARDE" AT THE PUSHKIN MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS BRINGS THEIR WORK TO RUSSIA FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER.
