In the 1920s, the Soviet government began selling antiques and art to acquire foreign currency as well as to dispose of religious images from the new atheistic society. It was through the various commission shops that many of the best Russian icons and objects of art were bought by those westerners who were able to travel to the Soviet at this time. In the 1930s exhibitions of Russian icons were organised by Hammer Galleries.
