Gene Shapiro Spring Auction of Russian Art April 16

Gene Shapiro Auctions LLC has announced their Spring Auction of Russian Art will take place on April 16, 2011 during “Russian Art Week” in New York City. Both the auction and a full week of preview exhibition starting on April 9th will take place at the company’s location at 506 East 74th Street, New York, NY 10021, with the auction itself beginning at 10:00 AM New York Time on the 16th.

The founder of the company, Gene Shapiro, is upbeat about both the quality and quantity of works that his eponymous firm will be offering, “With rising commodity prices and prominent buying by Russian buyers in the news, many private American collectors decided that now was the time to sell works that have been in their collections for years. As a result, we were able to obtain a lot of great consignments for this auction.” Indeed, on offer at Gene Shapiro will be more than 400 lots of paintings, bronzes, icons, enamel, silver, porcelain, rare books and maps, swords and militaria, posters, and works on paper, most of which are fresh to the market.
