LOT NOTES
The vast majority of Russian artworks from this estate collection were purchased by the parents of the current owner from Elena Kornetchuk at International Images, LTD. in Sewickley, PA (formerly Russian Images, Ltd.). Kornetchuk was an intrepid and widely admired dealer of Russian art, with direct personal contacts amongst the elite Soviet artists of the day, whose works she sold legally to the West. As of 1978, Kornetchuk secured an exclusive agreement with the Soviet foreign trade agency to export and sell art from the USSR to the USA.

This lot is being sold without reserve.
