Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov - Portrait of Power For the Rich Russian Art Collector

Russia is the world’s second-biggest oil exporter. According to Forbes, the number of Russian billionaires jumped to 110 in 2008 from 36 in 2004. This new wealthy class is eager to spend on luxury items and fine art.

People are looking for a way to invest and enjoy investing, and art is a great way to do that,' said Victoria Gelfand, director of Gagosian's London gallery who heads operations with Russia.

Gagosian's Moscow opening came a day after Dasha Zhukova and billionaire Roman Abramovich opened the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture, a non-profit organization that will promote contemporary art and culture in Russia. [from bloomberg]
