Icônes de l’art moderne
La collection Chtchoukine

Past: October 22, 2016 → March 5, 2017

As part of the official programme of the France-Russia year of cultural tourism 2016-17, 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. As Anne Baldassari, curator of the exhibition, states, his collection “remains little know to the general western public even today. In fact, since it was broken up in 1948 it has never been gathered as a singular and coherent artistic entity.”

Thanks to the generous participation of the Hermitage Museum and the Pushkin Museum, which greatly contributed to the conception of the project, the exhibition presents 130 masterpieces by impressionist, post-impressionist and modern masters from the Shchukin Collection.

Moreover the multimedia installation : “Shchukin, Matisse. La Dance et la Musique” by producer and director duo Peter Greenaway and Saskia Boddeke re-enacts the conditions in which Shchukin commissioned Matisse to create a monumental work for the Trubetskoy Palace’s staircase.
