Art Galleries to Purchase Paintings

Postby stindows » Mon Dec 10, 2018 10:32 am

Hi,

We are going to Moscow and St. Petersburg in June, and one of our vacation things to do is to purchase a painting to take home with us.

We have been thinking about the flea markets in both cities, but are concerned that the paintings could be taken away from us at the airport due to "cultural value". As a result, we were wondering if anyone had recommendations for reasonably-priced art galleries? The plan would be to purchase a painting (probably max budget per painting is about $500), have them certify it for export, and then we can take it home.

Any recommendations?

$500 sounds more like street-market level than gallery level to me but why not try galleries first. What I would suggest is go to the House of Artists in Krymsky Val, it's the same building as New Tretyakov Gallery. There are a lot of galleries inside AND there is an art market outside on the embankment, so you will have both options and a large choice all in the same place. :lol: :roll: :roll:

Yeah, I completely agree that $500 is "street level", but as I said, my concern was that my flea-market purchase would get taken away at the airport, which is a new wrinkle. The House of Artists sounds like a great option, and I see it is in Moscow. Would you have any similar recommendations for St. Petersburg?

The painting would be painted within the past couple of years. In the past, we've bought from street artists that have painted the work themselves within the past few months (presumably). I am not looking for a painting that is 50+ years old, just something that we think is cool to own.

I suppose one option could be purchasing a flea market type painting and seeing if a helpful gallery will certify it for export for a small additional fee. Do you think that could work?

I would start with visiting the galleries at the House of Artists and talking to them. I am not sure a gallery can quickly "certify" a painting for export - the certificate must be issued by the Ministry of Culture. In any case, they have the experience and will tell you what can and what can not be done.
