Full Description

The Fondation Louis Vuitton’s unprecedented 2016 exhibition brought together 130 masterpieces, among the most iconic of the collection created in Moscow by the great Russian art patron, Sergei Shchukin. From Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe (1866) by Claude Monet, the Mardi gras (1888-90) by Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin’s Tahitian odalisque Eh quoi, tu es jalouse? (1892), the luminescent panel L’Atelier du peintre (1911) by Henri Matisse, to conclude with Pablo Picasso’s Trois femmes (1908), the magnificence of Shchukin’s collection is exhibited here.

Extended by a group of some 30 major works from the Russian avant-gardes, including Counter Relief (1916) by Vladimir Tatlin, Green Stripe (1917) by Olga Rozanova, and Kazimir Malevich’s monochrome painting, Black Suprematie Square (1929), Icons of Modern Art covers the extreme breadth of this journey through 19th- and 20th-century creation. The presentation of these exceptional works, where our collective gaze comes together, constitutes an exemplary “painting lesson.”
