Leonid Shishkin Gallery (est.1989) specializes in Russian and British figurative art of the XX century making an emphasis on the plein air and impressionist oil paintings. We also offer an amazing range of the works on paper starting from original drawings and pastels, book illustrations to wood/linocuts/etchings and the works by the best theatre and cinema artists (including original sets and costume designs). Our collection of sculptures includes both original and circulation (small series) works in bronze, ceramics and porcelain.
Russian academicians of the Academy of Fine Arts of the USSR Dmitry Nalbandian, Alexander Gerasimov, Pyotr Konchalovsky, Fyodor Bogorodsky, Yury Pimenov and acclaimed British RA and NEAC members Ken Howard, Ian Houston, Robert Midley, Fred Dubery along with many other talented artists that followed and are still following in their work the plein-air and impressionist path, are our choice and the mainstream of our collection.
Apart of being a commercial gallery we’re also very proud to run cultural and educational projects to promote artists with a unique style which is hard to classify in a certain category. Our recent major exhibition of Alexander Gerasimov’s (1881-1963) works at the State Historical Museum in Moscow was a huge success due to its controversial content on the border of art and political history. Our current long-term project is the Art of Nikolay Smirnov (1937-2005) which is aiming to get hold of the majority of his unique Historical Still lives and then arrange a solo show to establish a new important name and show it to the public.
