Illustrated and beautifully produced, Old Masters, Impressionists & Modern tells the story of the Russian taste for French art. Essays highlight such collectors as Catherine the Great, members of the Russian nobility such as the Yusupovs and the Golitsyns, and the early twentieth-century merchant-patrons Sergei Shchukin and Ivan Morozov. The book's authors relate how works from these distinguished collections were united at the Pushkin Museum to form one of the most impressive arrays of French paintings outside of France. The book reproduces and discusses seventy-six of the museum's most important holdings, including masterpieces by Nicolas Poussin, Jacques-Louis David, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Camille Corot, Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cezanne, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso, some of which are also landmark works in the history of art.
