About Us


The Artists of Russia agency was established at a time when it was particularly difficult for Russian artists to get recognition outside of their own country. Our raison d’etre is to identify, nurture and promote these talented painters to a wider audience, creating a channel for collectors world-wide.

Our mother Gallery Francis Iles, has the honor of acting as a conduit for the Artists of Russia from our ‘bricks and mortar’ Georgian building in historic Rochester. We liaise with other UK galleries who recognize the quality of these desirable painters and have an established network of Art Fairs where the Artists of Russia can be seen.
