The Pushkin Museum sends 200 drawings from its collection to Paris

0

The Pushkin Museum is sending about two hundred works on paper from its own collection for an exhibition to the Parisian private fund Fondation Custodia . The exhibition “Five centuries of drawing” will include works by such masters as Durer, Rubens, Tiepolo, Kandinsky, Malevich, and others.

The acquaintance of Parisians with the largest Russian graphic collection began in 2016, when the director of the Pushkinskiy Marina Loshak initiated the first tour of this part of the collection and organized a small exhibition as part of the authoritative fair Salon du Dessin (Drawing Salon). Then they showed only twenty-nine works, as the museum workers said, of the “first row” and promised a powerful exhibition with a hundred works in the same Fondation Custodia in 2017. The plans, however, have shifted, but the volume has also doubled.

Today, a fantastic collection will move from Moscow to the French capital, including works by old masters, European and French artists of the 19th century, impressionists, modernists and Russian avant-garde artists. From Durer, Parmigianino, Fragonard and David to Renoir, Van Gogh and Picasso.
