A collection of work by painter Nikolai Timkov will be on display at The Mansion at Strathmore in North Bethesda Maryland through February 20th. The collection was assembled just after the fall of the Soviet Union by collector Timothy Wyman. At the time, Soviet art was unknown in the west and under-priced. Collector Matthew Bown reported recently on his blog that, “When I bought the late Nikolai Efimovich’s work, circa 1990, I acquired the best canvases at $100 each.”
