MacDougall's is the only fine art auction house to specialise exclusively in Russian art. The biannual
sales during London's Russian Art Week in June and December feature works by Russian masters from the
19th to the 21st century, works on paper, icons and works of art. We were the first international auction
house with a representative in Moscow and are still the only one with a representative in Kiev.
MacDougall's has developed an extensive client base in Russia and the CIS, nurturing close
relationships with collectors, and we regularly take preview exhibitions to both Moscow and Kiev.
All staff members are Russian speakers and we collaborate with leading Russian art experts,
institutions and artists.
The Russian art market has shown exceptional signs of recovery since April 2009 and continues
to go from strength to strength. What remains clear is that there is significant demand for high
quality works. Annual sales now total over £20 million and we have established several
new world records, including record auction prices for works by Aleksandr Deineka, Ilya Repin,
Zinaida Serebriakova and Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin.
Since the firm's founding in 2004, MacDougall's has risen to become one of the three world leaders
in Russian art at auction and now holds a quarter of the global market. With plans for growth and
expansion into several areas including private treaty sales, continued growth is expected.
