The Russian Art Week opened its doors on the 27th November 2015 at the Corinthia Hotel Apartments, 10 Whitehall Place, for its 7th edition.
The evening was sponsored by Knight Frank Estate Agents. An exceptional Louis XIII Cognac was offered by Remy Martin to all guests invited. Louis XIII is a blend of Cognacs, among which a 100 year old one, presented in beautifully decorated Baccarat crystal bottles that one can buy on the market for $25,000 a bottle.
A very interesting marketing analysis was delivered by experts from Bonham's Auction House about the trend taken by investors that are spending always more on alternative forms of speculation for mere predilection as opposed to traditional forms of investment. And art is just the right product to invest in for passion.
The evening was completed by the magnificent artwork exhibited on the walls of the £15 million venue in which the launch evening took place. Excellent paintings supplied by the Gagliardi Gallery in King's Road where on display for all the guests to observe and appreciate. One of the most esteemed galleries in London created the fundamental atmosphere for such an important event and thanks to their expertise we were able to have confirmation that effectively investing in art is not only a trend but a very good policy and that the love for art is pushing investors towards this kind of market.
The Russian Art Week will be full of events, exhibitions, performances, auctions, conferences, and much more, all around the city of London the highlight of which will be Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker and opera Eugene Onegin at The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.
Enjoy this wonderful occasion to meet Russian culture at its best!
