FrontRunners: The Russia Art House

    Moscow’s massive Manege, a neoclassical landmark built in 1817 for the five-year anniversary of Russia’s victory over Napoléon Bonaparte’s troops, was intended to shelter an entire infantry regiment, including horses. The building soon will host a corps of a different sort, when more than 80 international dealers gather from May 28 through June 4 for the fourth annual Moscow World Fine Art Fair (www.moscow-faf.com). Among the thousands of items on display will be the pair of vases pictured here, from Paris antiques dealer Michel-Guy Chadelaud. The porcelain and ormolu vases, standing 32 inches tall, were created by Alfred Beurdeley in the late 19th century.
