Theodora Clarke on Russian Art Week

In a recent interview published by Russia Beyond the Headlines, Theodora Clarke discussed the state of Russian Art and her involvement in London’s Russian Art Week.

Russian Art Week, London’s bi-annual event that brings together the major auction houses and Russian art galleries and collectors from around the world, has been growing. Information about the different sales and exhibitions taking place during the week, however, has been hard to come by. Theodora Clarke, editor of the website Russian Art and Culture began complete coverage of the event last year, providing online and printed guides to the event for collectors. Clarke will continue producing the guides for Russian Art Week this November.

“I noticed that many people in the West are well acquainted with Russian music, ballet and literature. However, I found that Russian art is simply not as well known here, apart from the great avant-garde painters, such as Kandinsky, Chagall or Goncharova. One of my aims with Russian Art Week and the Russian Art & Culture website is to bring this unique culture to a wider audience both here in London and to international audiences around the world.”
