In response to the tremendous success of the Icons of Modern Art – The Shchukin Collection exhibition, the Fondation Louis Vuitton has announced that the show will be extended until March 5, 2017. This gives the public a chance to discover or rediscover the 130 masterpieces of modern art and their resonance with works by Russian avant-garde artists. In the ten weeks since it opened, the exhibition Icons of Modern Art – The Shchukin Collection at the Fondation Louis Vuitton has already welcomed over 600,000 visitors.

 The historic and unprecedented exhibition pays tribute to Sergei Shchukin, one of the greatest patrons of the arts of the last century.
Organized in partnership with the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, the Pushkin Museum and the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, the exhibition at the Fondation Louis Vuitton will be extended from February 20 to March 5, 2017.

The main accent in the exhibition is placed on the development of modern art in the years 1890–1914, the time when the collection and Shchukin’s individual vision took shape. The exhibition has been allotted the whole of display space of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, where architectural elements of the Trubetskoi family mansion in Moscow’s Znamensky Lane, which was the original home of the collection, have been partially reproduced, making it possible to demonstrate Shchukin’s original manner of hanging the canvases. A special multimedia installation created by Peter Greenaway and Saskia Boddeke is devoted to Matisse’s paintings Dance and Music.
