Paintings by Mark Rothko are believed to be the most expensive, if compared to other Russian artists. Its White Center (1950) was sold for 72.8 million dollars plus it is the 12th most expensive painting in the world. However, Rothko was a Jew who left Russia at age 10. So, we will cross him out from our list of most expensive paintings by Russian artists. № 1. Kazimir Malevich – 60 million dollars. Suprematist Composition, 1916 (Sotheby’s, 2008) The painting was created in 1916 and stayed with the artist until June 1927. Malevich exhibited his
work in the Grosse Berliner Kunstausstellung in Berlin, but was soon to leave for the USSR. The painting soon went to German architect Hugo Hering, who then sold it to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. It stayed there for the next 50 years. After 17 years of legal battle over the painting's ownership, the painting was returned to heirs of the artist. In November, 2008 they sold it at an auction. In 2012, they returned another painting by their prominent ancestor taking it away from a museum in Switzerland.
