MacDougall’s 30 May auction, which opened the 2020 Russian art week, proved to be a
great success raising over £2 m, with practically all the top lots sold. The classic works by
Korovin (£182,000), Gorbatov (£156,000), Sokolov-Skalya (£149,500), and Annenkov
(£100,200), were all sold. The sale rate was healthy at over 50% overall; for contemporary works the sale rate was nearly 70%. New record prices were achieved in this sector with
Koshlyakov’s Opera selling for over £93,000. William MacDougall commented “It was an
historic moment for the Russian market. Our decision to conduct the auction in the
traditional format, with an auctioneer and online, commission, and telephone bidding, was
vindicated by the vibrant bidding”.
