LONDON.- On 27th and 30th of May MacDougall’s will offer an exceptional selection of rare Russian masterpieces, many of which have never before appeared at auction. The evening sale of Important Russian Art, which will take place on Sunday the 27th, will be led by the museum-quality painting, Still Life. Apples and Eggs, by Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin, estimated at £2,000,000-3,000,000.

Oil paintings by Petrov-Vodkin are exceedingly rare to appear on the market and few works of such significance as Still Life. Apples and Eggs remain in private hands. The work was previously owned by Abram Chudnovsky, one of the most important Soviet collectors of early 20th century Russian avant-garde painting. The work was widely exhibited after Chudnovsky’s death in 1985, and is now offered at auction for the first time.
