Darn - I love Russian art - but I don't arrive in London until the 15th. Give your wife my good wishes that her lecture goes well.

You'll miss out on presentations by people who are tops in the Russian art field-Vitaly is one of the best Russian artis, Alla and Natasha are the top scholars (and Natasha is the largest private collector of this art), and of course Dr. Ozerkov is with one of the world's top museums.

The sale will be on the 15th from 2:30 till around 5 if you're around.

There will also be some Russian-focused art events around April 10 in London.

My daughter and I will be in London a month later. It's too bad, as we would have enjoyed this as well. I was an art history major and her minor is Russian Studies.

Sotheby's added a brief introduction to the sale at

I appreciated hearing their connection to the first sale held in Moscow in 1988-it was truly the first of its kind, and I am proud that my family has been involved in both sales.
