Calling beautiful paintings fans! The Fondation Louis Vuitton devotes an exhibition to the collection of the Morozov brothers, Mikhaïl Abramovitch and Ivan Abramovitch, two Russian patrons and collectors. A retrospective created in partnership with the State Hermitage Museum in Saint-Petersburg, the Pushkin Museum and the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. Because of coronavirus, the exhibition has been postponed again.
A beautiful collection of French and Russian modern art gathered in the early 20th century including many paintings of great masters such as Renoir, Picasso, Monet and even Matisse, first exhibited in the summer 2019 at the State Hermitage Museum in Saint-Petersburg before coming to Paris. All in all, about a hundred works and other impressionist and modernist paintings are said to travel to the Fondation Louis Vuitton for a unique display in the heart of the museum.
This beautiful and upcoming exhibition marks a new step in the cultural friendship between France and Russia, continuing an institutional partnership started in 2015 by the Fondation Louis Vuitton with the State Hermitage Museum in Saint-Petersburg, the Pushkin Museum and the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. Out of this partnership were born several exhibitions, “Les Clefs d’une passion” in 2015 and even “Icônes de l’art moderne. La collection Chtchoukine” in 2016. Save the date, friends, shall we?
