Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932

One hundred years on from the Russian Revolution, the Royal Academy is taking a look back at one of the most momentous periods in modern world history with an exhibition entitled, "Revolution: Russian Art 1917–1932"

Renowned artists on display will include Kandinsky, Malevich, Chagall and Rodchenko, who all lived through the fateful events of 1917, which ended centuries of Tsarist rule and shook Russian society.

The exhibition is running until 17 April 2017 and tickets cost £18. In celebration, we have unearthed several antiques at Grays from the run up to, during and period after the revolution. Here are our favourite picks.
