UK: Svedomsky's 'A Kiss' could auction for €170,000 in London!

United Kingdom, London
November 27, 2015 at 15:36 GMT +00:00 · Published

Pavel Aleksandrovich Svedomsky's painting 'A Kiss,' alongside other Russian artworks, were on display at the Bonhams Auction House in New Bond Street, London, Friday. They go under the hammer on Wednesday, December 2.

A Kiss, considered one of Svedomsky's finest pieces, has an estimated value of between £80,000 and £120,000 (€114,000 and €170,000). The large painting, of nearly two metres high (6.6 ft), is incredibly rare to find at auction houses.

Pavel Aleksandrovich Svedomsky (1849 - 1904) was a successful academic painter, educated in Russia and Germany before settling in Rome. From the Italian capital, he became known as a major figure of the European Neoclassical Revival movement. As an artist he was inspired by the beauty of the Italian capital, although he never lost touch with the Russian artistic community and continued participating in numerous exhibitions in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
