If there is one institution that has made us accustomed to discovering exceptional exhibitions, it is the Fondation Louis Vuitton. The last one dedicated to Cindy Sherman was unfortunately not able to be seen much, due to a forced closure. For the one that was supposed to open in the Spring and which has wisely been postponed to September 2021, the Foundation has once again pulled off a master stroke. The Morozov exhibition is finally coming to Paris and it is another event for Paname. Presented for the first time outside Russia, The Morozov Collection brings together major works by Cézanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Bonnard, Denis, Matisse, Derain and Picasso alongside emblematic artists of the Russian avant-garde such as Vroubel, Malevitch, Répine, Larionov, Sérov. It brings together more than 200 masterpieces of modern French and Russian art by the Moscow brothers Mikhail Abramovich Morozov (1870-1903) and Ivan Abramovich Morozov (1871-1921). Conceived by Anne Baldassari, general curator and former director of the Musée Picasso in Paris, the exhibition displays this ensemble in an original museography occupying the entire space of the Fondation Louis Vuitton. This event, the second part of the major Icons of Modern Art exhibition, is organised in partnership with the State Hermitage Museum (Saint Petersburg), the Pushkin State Fine Arts Museum (Moscow) and the Tretyakov National Gallery (Moscow). After the exhibition of the Shchukin Collection at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in 2016/2017, the Morozov Collection will be another major historical exhibition dedicated to the great Russian collectors of the early 20th century.
