Provenance Matters. The Mass Faking of the Russian Avant Garde on the World Art Market 2000-2018. James Butterwick Tuesday 14 January 2020

James Butterwick was born in 1962 in Maidenhead. His grandfather Cyril Butterwick was Head of Silver at Sotheby’s, and his godfather Peregrine Pollen President of Sotheby’s Parke Burnet in New York. After taking A-levels in History, French and History of Art at Eton, James studied Fine Art at the University of East Anglia. In 1985 he made his first trip to Russia: the start of a love affair initially inspired by the ‘romantic lyricism of Turgenev.’ In 1985/6 he studied Russian Language & Literature in Minsk and Pyatigorsk before graduating in Russian & Fine Art from Bristol University in 1987 and embarking on his art world career.
