LONDON.- An important work by the Russian artist Andrei Lanskoy is one of the highlights of Bonhams Russian sale in London on 7 June.

‘L’abîme du soir’ (£100,000 – 150,000) is an important example of the pure abstract style and powerful and saturated colours for which Lanskoy is best known. He fled Russia after the revolution and lived in Paris from 1921 until his death in 1976. ‘L’abîme du soir’ is to be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of Lanskoy’s work.

A 1966 portrait by the leading Moscow Conceptualist artist Erik Bulatov of the artist Olga Andreeva (£80,000- 120,000) is a striking and very rare example of his ‘Falk’ period showing the influence on his work of the early 20th century avant-garde Russian painter Robert Falk.

Vladimir Weisberg’s portrait of the dissident Alexander Guinsberg, ‘Portrait of Guinsberg in a plaster-cast’ (£50,000 – 70,000) is a vivid reminder of the artist’s preoccupation with the metaphysical and Elena Kiseleva’s ‘Portrait de femme’ (£80,000 – 100,000) an enchanting example of the art form for which she became renowned.

A 1863 painting by Alexander Kharitonov, ‘The Constellation of the Great-Bear’ (£40,000 -60,000); ‘The corner of 4th and Bowery , 1934’ (£1000,150,000) by David Burliuk executed in New York four years after he was granted US citizenship; and a ‘Coastal Scene’ (£80,000 – 100,000) by Ivan Aivazovsky from 1875 also feature in a line-up of outstanding works.

Among the other items for sale is a silver-mounted, seed-pearl and enamel Fabergé clock (£70,000 – 90,000) spirited out of Russia after the revolution by its owner Prince Mikhail Cantacuzène and his American wife Julia, the granddaughter of the 18th US President, Ulysses Grant.
