Russian Woodwork



When we first opened Iconastas in Piccadilly Arcade we filled the window with over 100 pieces of pre-Revolutionary woodwork from both the private collections of John Gaze and Chris Martin-Zakheim. The fabulous paintings of Russian peasant life with its farms, villages and market places attracted scores of visitors to our shop. Little did we realise at the time how these small artistic treasures were painted by artists from the villages of Abramtsevo and Talashkino who went on to found the Revolutionary Arts movements of the 1920's and 1930's .Over the thirty-two years in the shop we have been lucky to purchase the collections of "Greek John" and many items from the "Two Bears" who hunt the markets of the North of England.
