Thanks to the generous contribution of the Hermitage Museum and the Pushkin State Museum, which took part in the creation of the project, the exhibition will have the opportunity to present a significant ensemble of 130 major pieces by the Impressionist, PostImpressionist and Modern masters from the Shchukin collection. There will be a particular emphasis on the art of Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, Rousseau, Derain, Matisse and Picasso, alongside works from Degas, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec and Van Gogh.

A cultural programme designed around the exhibition and focusing on dance and music will bear witness to the artistic dialogue between France and Russia at the beginning of the 20th century and still present within contemporary creation today.

The exhibition will also provide the opportunity for a scientific review, and will be accompanied by a catalogue. In February 2017, a symposium will bring together the international community of researchers investigating the role of the great collectors of modern and contemporary art of the 19th and 20th century.

    "My art-making emerges as poignant expressions of ineffable yearning. Each crafted curve and enigmatic form become models of my emotions, a visual poem encapsulating the essence of my longing. Themes of "missing" reverberate through my work - whether it’s an empty hook, drawer, or cradle - all serve as metaphors for the profound gaps within the human experience.
