Russia authorized four museums to send artworks to London for an exhibition opening Jan. 26 after canceling the show last month over concerns that pictures might be seized. Russian authorities said on Dec. 19 that the United Kingdom didn't offer sufficient guarantees to protect the pictures against confiscation. To address those concerns, the British government on Dec. 30 enacted a law protecting artworks loaned from abroad against third-party seizure. The exhibition consists of artworks from the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Russian Museum and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, all in Moscow.

Relations between the United States and Russia have been chilly since Russia invaded Georgia in August, but there's some warming at a small museum in Clinton, Mass. The Museum of Russian Icons said Thursday that the State Tretyakov Gallery of Moscow has agreed to send 16 of its most precious icons there for display from Oct. 16 to May 1. It's the first time some of the icons have left Moscow. The crisis in Georgia, which was condemned by the United States, almost scuttled the exhibit, but officials at the museums were able to reach an agreement.

Imagine France shutting down the Louvre for a decade while political cataclysm visited chaos and poverty upon Paris. Such was the fate of the State Tretyakov Gallery, Russia's premier art museum, which will reopen April 5 after being closed for a renovation that has lasted an epic 10 years. "It began before Gorbachev, and it ends with Yeltsin," said Lidia I.

Art buffs in Moscow get a brief chance this weekend to view some significant Russian paintings that have long been hidden in American private collections and may disappear from public view again in April. The three-day exhibition at the State Tretyakov Gallery's modern art wing is sponsored by Sotheby's auction house, which will put the paintings up for sale in New York in mid-April.

A sweeping exhibit of Russian art, including pieces rarely seen outside Russia, opened Friday at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. A companion show, displaying czarist treasures from the 16th and 17th centuries, opened earlier this month at the Guggenheim-Hermitage Museum in Las Vegas. The New York exhibit, with about 275 works, does not set a record for size, said Valerie Hillings, one of its nine co-curators.

Amid the din of power saws, hammering and sanding, a new home is taking shape in a former church for a stereotype-shattering museum, the only one in North America dedicated to Russian art from the Soviet era. The Museum of Russian Art, founded in 2002 by art dealer Raymond E. Johnson, is scheduled to reopen May 9 in the former Mayflower Church in southern Minneapolis.

The Soviet Union's most celebrated art museum in international circles is the one that houses its foreign collections. Long lines form almost daily at the entrance of the Hermitage's palatial structure in Leningrad. When the Soviets loan French Impressionist works from the Hermitage's collection--as they did last year in an exhibition that traveled to Los Angeles--the event brings front page headlines and record attendance.

The decade between 1907 and 1917 was one of exceptional personal upheaval and startling artistic growth for the young Russian painter Marc Chagall. But looking at the exhibition that chronicles those convulsive and exciting years, newly opened at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, you'd hardly know it. "Marc Chagall: 1907-1917" is a wan and enervated display, short on major pictures and erratic in the tale it means to tell. It's too bad.
