London – Christies is proud to announce the sale of Boris Kustodievs masterpiece The Coachman, 1923 (estimate: £1,500,000 – 2,000,000), which will be offered in Important Russian Art on 26 November 2012. It is presented from the prestigious collection of Peter Kapitza (1894-1984), renowned scientist and recipient of the 1978 Nobel Prize for Physics, who was both a friend and patron to Kustodiev and acquired the picture directly from the artists wife in 1936. Further offered from the Kapitza collection is Alexander Shevchenkos The City Outskirts, purchased from the artists daughter by Kapitza in 1963 (estimate £50,000-70,000). As Christie’s celebrates 40 years of Russian Art sales, it is an exciting privilege to offer such iconic works as major highlights of our November auction. The Coachman was a key painting in the seminal Russian Art Exhibition in New York in 1924 and was chosen from over 900 works as the poster image for this groundbreaking show. The exhibition opened at Grand Central Palace, presenting to an international audience a selection of works by 100 of Russias finest contemporary artists. Presented now at auction for the first time in history, in the wake of the 1917 Revolution and World War I, against a backdrop of tremendous social change and a new world order, this magnificent painting became the emblem of this bold venture, encapsulating in an image the Russia that Russians chose to present to the world. In the words of the émigré Count Ilya Tolstoy, I am not an art critic. I did not come to see the pictures: I came to see Russia and that is what I saw. It is difficult to overestimate the extent to which the work of Kustodiev and The Coachman itself are seared into the minds and hearts of the Russian people.
