Events in Art and Archaeology

Icons of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection
PARIS  •  Fondation Louis Vuitton  •  22 October 2016 - 20 February 2017
 
Fondation Louis Vuitton presents the exhibition Icons of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection. The show pays tribute to one of the greatest art patrons of the early 20th century, Sergei Shchukin, the visionary Russian collector of French modern art. From 1898, Sergei Shchukin, a leading Moscow industrialist, quickly became an integral member of the Parisian arts milieu of the era, forging relationships with modern art dealers Paul Durand-Ruel, Ambroise Vollard, and Berthe Weill, then Georges Bernheim and Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler. His friendship with celebrated artists like Henri Matisse heavily influenced the formation of his collection, one of the most radical of its time.

130 works are exhibited in this exhibition including works by Picasso (29), Matisse (22), Gauguin (12), Monet (8), Cezanne (8) and Malevich (8).

Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting
PARIS  •  Musée du Louvre  •  22 February - 22 May 2017
 
Organized in partnership with the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the exhibition presents Vermeer’s great masterpieces and those of his contemporaries.

Through comparisons with the works of other artists of the Golden Age—among them Gerrit Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch, Gabriel Metsu, Caspar Netscher, and Frans van Mieris—the exhibition brings to light Vermeer’s membership of a network of painters specializing in the depiction of everyday life while admiring, inspiring, and vying with each other. Although they were painting in different cities of the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands, their pictures show marked similarities of style, subject, composition, and technique.
