With this exhibition, the museum continues its series on the most famous and influential artists of the twentieth century. This is the third major showing at the Fabergé Museum in the last two years, following the hugely successful exhibitions of Salvador Dalí (2017) and Frida Kahlo (2016).
In the exhibition, audiences will be able to see for the first time a unique collection of paintings by leading artists of the School of Paris in the first few decades of the twentieth century. The collection has been assembled by their contemporary and patron Jonas Netter. Works by the most famous names and the most important showpieces of Netter’s collection are on display: paintings by Amedeo Modigliani, Chaim Soutine, Maurice Utrillo, and also works by Moïse Kisling, Maurice de Vlaminck, Andre Derain, Suzanne Valadon, and other legendary masters of Montparnasse.
Altogether, the exhibition includes more than 120 works by artists of the School of Paris, which constitute the core of Jonas Netter’s unique collection.
The exhibition is organized by the Cultural-Historical Foundation "The Link of Times" and by the Fabergé Museum in St. Petersburg. The curator of the exhibition, Marc Restellini, is an art historian and one of the world's leading experts on the body of works of Amedeo Modigliani.
