As Russia’s power in the art world rises, we wanted to highlight one New York-based auction house that specializes in Russian painters.
Founded by Gene Shapiro, who was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, but raised in the United States, Gene Shapiro Auctions specializes in selling Russian paintings and works of art; the auctions house is known worldwide as a leader in this field. The artwork sold is not limited to a certain time period either, as the auction house regularly sells works by Old Masters as well as contemporary artists, and all time periods in between.
Get a sneak-peek at their upcoming sale, which takes place this Saturday, February 16.
The World Celebrates Carnival
Instagrammers around the world are sharing scenes from this week’s Carnival festivities. In cities across Brazil, samba schools spend the four days leading up to Ash Wednesday competing in parades that can last for hours. In Trinidad and Tobago, Carnival’s extravagant street parades, calypso music, and limbo competitions make it the country’s biggest event of the year; it’s said that if the islanders are not celebrating Carnival, then they are preparing for it! In Venice, masked baroque revelers march through historic streets and dance at the Gran Ballo delle Maschere.
