Russian Art and Culture is preparing to relaunch as we transition from an arts blog to a professional website. We have been amazed by the response to our blog with over 18,000 hits in more than 15 countries around the world since we first posted. We are already the 22nd most popular arts blog in the world according to Blogrank with our high number of RSS subscribers.
The new site will go live in late May to coincide with Russian Art Week when major Russian sales will take place at auction houses across London.
Our first major interview will be with Prince Nikita Lobanov who is a well-known collector of Russian art. Over the years he has acquired many costumes and designs for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. He has written several major books on Russian painting and the stage and is a fellow of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a Regent of the Institute of Modern Russian Culture. He will sharing with us his insights on collecting designs for the Ballets Russes.

If you have an article or recent research to share with our readers then please get in touch.
