The Leonid Shishkin Gallery UK first opened in 2011 with the premises in Weybridge where it was offering a quality Russian art to both locals and Russian expats. Since then the Gallery has successfully integrated into British art scene through participating at the well-established and reputable art fairs in London and Surrey. We buy at the auctions and also directly from the artists and the artists’ estates and are proud to offer authentic and quality art with a clear provenance.
For decades we have been known as leading specialists in Russian Art but in the last couple of years we have been lucky enough to expand our interests and passion into the XX century British art. Our great pleasure was to discover an amazing similarity between Russian and British painting of the same period and we also have been thrilled to see where lies the difference between them. We are especially enthralled to uncover in the British art the flourishing tradition of plain-air paintings and a rich legacy of impressionism that successfully survived and (is still keeping up) with all modern and post- modern trends of highly turbulent and diverse XX century.
Today Shishkin Gallery UK is based in Farnham (Surrey). Our company benefits from being linked with our sister branch in Moscow which is still bearing its historic name - Leonid Shishkin Gallery.
