The First Russian Art Fair took place
in London from 6th to 8th June 2009.

The Fair is the first event of its kind
devoted entirely to Russian Art. From
Fabergé jewels to Imperial Russian
silver; from Russian icons to fine
paintings, The Russian Art Fair unites
dealers and collectors from across the
world with a stunning array of the finest
works produced by Russian craftsmen
and artists over the last millenium.

With London now established as the
principle city for Russian art auctions
and home to a wealth of serious
Russian collectors, the Russian Art
Fair has established itself as the next
major player on the global fairs circuit.
The Fair not only attracts numerous
Russian businessmen, collectors and
oligarchs who are now living in
London, but also collectors from
Russia and beyond, including the
numerous Western collectors of all
things Russian.

The London Fair proved to be one of
the social highlights of the year for the
Russian community in London,
commencing with a Charity Gala
Evening in aid of The Children’s Fire
and Burns Trust and Friends of
Russian Children (Patron: HRH Prince
Michael of Kent GCVO). The Gala
Evening was attended by Their
Highnesses Prince and Princess Dimitri
Lobanov Rostovsky and other high
profile members of the London
Russian community, celebrity clientele,
VIPs and invited guests.
