Highlighting important works of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art acquired by Moscow collectors Ivan Morozov (1871-1921) and Sergei Shchukin (1854-1936) from the late 1890s to the beginning of World War I, this catalogue features fine reproductions and individual analyses of 120 works by 24 major artists, including numerous paintings by Monet, Cezanne, Gauguin, Matisse and Picasso, seven murals by Denis, and a series of bronze nudes by Maillol. A lengthy chronicle of the collecting activities of the Morozov and Shchukin families and the nationalization of their holdings in 1918 is supplemented by two essays examining artistic currents in Russia at the turn of the century and the influence of the featured collections on the development of Russian avant-garde art.
