A new exhibition of great success in the cultural life of the capital is expected. The project “Brother Ivan. Collection of Mikhail and Ivan Morozov” will open to visitors in the main building of the Pushkin Museum im. Pushkin June 28.
After a long journey and long-awaited return, the paintings from the collection of the Morozov brothers will be seen in Moscow. The exhibition reconstructs the collections of French and Russian painting gathered at the beginning of the century by the Morozov brothers, representatives of the richest family of businessmen and patrons. Spectators will see iconic works by Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Gauguin, Matisse, and Picasso.
The collection of Mikhail Morozov, who died prematurely in 1903, was heterogeneous and eclectic, but nevertheless included the first works in Russia by Gauguin, Van Gogh and Munch, and became a prologue to the “ideal museum” of his younger brother, who he approached his collection carefully and consistently.
Let us remember that last April 3rd the exhibition “The Morozov Collection. Masterpieces of Contemporary Art”. 67 works from the collections of the Pushkin Museum im. Pushkin, 65 – from the Hermitage, 33 works from the Tretyakov Gallery and 2 – from the Russian Museum. The transportation of all the paintings, graphic works and sculptures took almost 20 days. Due to the sanctions imposed, there was a risk that part of the collection would not return to its country of origin, but the exchange of museums is protected by international agreements, according to which museums are obliged to return works from any temporary exhibition in the Foreign.
