A platform for hosting international exhibitions of fine art with works of art of the XI - XXI centuries

We are exclusive partners of galleries from the USA, Europe and Asia, which sell and represent the leading artists on the planet. We run art exhibitions with world-famous galleries, which are sales leaders of famous artists of the past and are ready to present their works in Russia, exclusively through us.
The art that we show is of interest to different segments of population. These are not crosses and torn newspapers (contemporary art), neither we show any boring academic art
Despite the high cost of works (up to 5 million Euros), galleries make profit at our exhibitions thanks to excellent guest lists.
Our exhibitions are insured by the largest art insurance company AON and reinsured by LLOYDS, so we have the opportunity to import serious works of art to Russia with an acceptable budget


RAFAF was created in 2012 in cooperation with several galleries –participants of the most  important fair in the world, TEFAF Art Fair Maastricht, in order to showcase selected works by classic masters alongside modern artworks. Previous RAFAF exhibitions in Moscow exhibited masterpieces by Breughel, Cranach, Rubens, Snyders, Hals, Rembrandt, Modigliani, Picasso, Botero, Rodin, Bugatti, and other top artists in arts history. Unfortunately, the crisis has cut down the number of European and American galleries that used to bring classical and modern artworks to Russia.
