 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.
