Icons of Modern Art, the Shchukin Collection


Hurry up if you wish to see exhibition Icons of Modern Art, the Shchukin Collection at Fondation Louis Vuitton!

The outstanding private art collection of Sergei Shchukin is a must-see at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. There are long line-ups every day to see masterpieces of Monet, Degas, Picasso, Matisse, Renoir and other prestigious names from the art history. The artworks were hidden for a long time in the Moscow mansion of the super-rich collector and have never been sent out of Russia. This is the very first time even for some of the finest French impressionist and post-impressionist art to appear public. I was particularly surprising to see Les Mouettes, one of the most famous Monet paintings. As the organizers say: “This is a historic event which will have people coming from all over the world, something we are not likely to see again for a while”. The show which runs until February 2017 also includes 30 major pieces from the Russian avant-garde suprematist constructivist movements, loaned by the Tretyakov State Gallery in Moscow and the Russian Museum in St Petersburg.
