Creative work of the later two artists - the greatest masters of 20 th century - is represented at the exhibition most fully: 20 works by Matisse and 15 by Picasso. The exhibition wil provide a possibility to see canvases of not only well-known geniuses of European art, but also pictures by Derain, Valtat, Vallotto whose role in the history of French art was considerable. Most exhibits originate from two famous Russian collections - of Sergei Shchukin and Ivan Morozov. Some pictures from the Hermitage collection that were purchased recently will be on display abroad for the first time: Beach in Trouville by Boudin and Custine street on Montmartre by Utrillo. Two Compositions with a cut pear by Picasso , Spring by Rouault and a number of drawings by Matisse will also be displayed outside Russia for the first time.
