Christie’s had a “Russian Art” auction event today in London, the same week Sotheby’s is running its own between June 9 – 12. Probably not by accident, Christie’s auction covers the same era, paintings and antiquities are mostly from the the early 19th through early 20th century. Below are a few million highlights in the one million dollars range.

“France. Parc Montsouris. Chestnut tree” by Petr Konchalovsky (1876-1956) was sold for £577,250 (~$1,133,143)
