"THE MUSES OF MONTPARNASSE" IN MOSCOW

24 July 2021

The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts will present the exhibition "The Muses of Montparnasse" in Moscow. Opening of the exposition in the Gallery of 19th-20th century European and American art is scheduled for 15 July. The exhibition is dedicated to the legends of the Parisian district of Montparnasse - women who set the tone for one of the brightest eras. Most of the works were provided by European and American private collectors and will be shown in Russia for the first time.

The exhibition features more than 50 paintings, about 100 drawings, about 20 sculptures, more than 20 works of applied art, as well as art photographs, archival documents and materials.

“In the free and liberated environment of the Montparnasse district, the talents of artists and models, writers and collectors, and prominent secular figures were revealed. This exhibition is a story about the most important, famous and sometimes undeservedly forgotten characters in the art scene of Montparnasse in the first decades of the 20th century,” the museum says.

The exposition contains a gallery of the most striking images of those who asserted the role of women in various fields of art in the 1900-1940s.
