The exhibition ‘Icons of Modern Art. The Shchukin Collection’ at Fondation Louis Vuitton will be of the most prominent events of the France-Russia Year of Cultural Tourism (2016-2017).  The exhibition pays tribute to one of the greatest art patrons of the early 20th century, Sergei Shchukin, the visionary Russian collector of French modern art, whose collection ‘is still not well known to the general public, even today’, states Anne Baldassari, curator of the exhibition.

Thanks to the generous contribution of the Hermitage Museum and the Pushkin State Museum, which took part in the creation of the project, the exhibition will have the opportunity to present a significant ensemble of 160 major pieces by the Impressionist, Post-Impressionists and Modern masters from the Shchukin collection. There will be a particular emphasis on the art of Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, Rousseau, Derain, Matisse and Picasso, alongside works from Degas, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec and Van Gogh.
