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).

René Magritte: La trahison des images
PARIS  •  Centre Georges Pompidou  •  21 September 2016 - 23 January 2017
 

The exhibition Magritte: La trahison des images aims to offer a completely new approach to the work of the Belgian artist René Magritte. Featuring both well-known masterpieces and other less familiar works, all drawn from leading public and private collections, it offers a fresh look at one of the key figures of Modern art.

The latest in the series of monographic exhibitions the Centre Pompidou has devoted to major figures in 20th-century art ¬– “Edward Munch: L’œil moderne”, “Matisse: Paires et séries” and “Duchamp: La peinture, même” – this exhibition brings together around one hundred paintings, drawings and documents offering a fresh approach to the painter. “Magritte: La trahison des images” explores the artist’s interest in philosophy, an interest that would culminate in the publication of Foucault’s Ceci n’est pas une pipe (1973), born out of the writers discussions with the artist.
