Icons of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection

Icons of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection
PARIS  •  Fondation Louis Vuitton  •  Ongoing
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).
