Christie’s to stage first exhibition in newly restored Pashkov House. Exhibition to include exceptional masterpieces including works by Amedeo Modigliani, Andy Warhol, Sir Peter Paul Rubens, Natalia Goncharova and Fabergé.

Moscow – Christie’s, the world’s leading art business, is delighted to announce an exhibition of exceptional works of art which will take place at The Russian State Library, Pashkov House from 18 to 20 October 2007. As Russia becomes an increasingly influential international centre for art and culture, Christie’s continues to invest in the region.

Following on from exhibitions in Moscow and Samara in 2006, and the more recent exhibition of Vasilii Vereshchagin’s Solomon’s Wall at The State Tretyakov Gallery in 2007, the first ever viewing of the work in Russia, Christie’s exhibition at Pashkov House will include a selection of exceptional works of art including works by Amedeo Modigliani, Andy Warhol, Natalia Goncharova, Sir Peter Paul Rubens and Fabergé, among others.

Edward Dolman, CEO of Christie’s: «Christie’s are honored to present this exhibition of masterpieces of Impressionist, Modern, Post-War, Contemporary, Asian and Russian Art as well as Old Master paintings in the magnificent renovated rooms of Pashkov House, one of the city’s most important cultural symbols. The scale and grandeur of this building helped to define the level of the works of art by Amedeo Modigliani, Andy Warhol, Sir Peter Paul Rubens, Natalia Goncharova and Fabergé that we are bringing to Moscow. Christie’s will showcase the very best works of art that will be offered at our forthcoming international sales this autumn. This exhibition is a result of our cooperation with The Russian State Library and Gazprombank and we are grateful for their support».

Christie’s high profile exhibition will be take place between 18 and 20 October and will showcase highlights from upcoming auctions taking place in London, Hong Kong and New York.
