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.

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.
