Caspar David Friedrich

This first large retrospective exhibition in France of the works on paper from the Moscow museum contains examples from the European and Russian Schools, dating from the 15th to the 20th centuries. The selection of more than two hundred works gives the public a taste of this remarkable collection. Dürer, Veronese, Rubens, Fragonard, Tiepolo, Friedrich, Kandinsky, Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani, Chagall and Malevich are displayed alongside the great names of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism: Renoir, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec and Van Gogh.

The Pushkin Museum was founded at the beginning of the 20th century. The collection was started by Professor Ivan Tsvetaev in 1912, then added to throughout the century. The collection of graphic art, today numbering more than 350,000 prints and 27,000 drawings, was built up from donations by private collectors in Russia, acquisitions and the transfer of works of art from other museums including the Rumiantsev Museum, the Hermitage, the Russian Museum and the National Museum of Modern Western Art.
