Within the framework of the Russian Year in Monaco, in partnership with the Compagnie Monégasque de Banque, Bereg and Cote Magazines, and the D'Amico Group
The Grimaldi Forum's big summer 2015 exhibition is part of the Principality of Monaco's Russia Year and one of that celebration's stand-out events.
The exhibition will bring together 150 major works by great artists who made up Russia's avant-garde art scene from 1905 to 1930, when various movements and schools developed, driven by the energy and wealth of creativity in the first part of the 20th century: Impressionism followed by Cubism, Futurism, Cubo-Futurism, Rayonism, Suprematism, Constructivism....
These Russian artists crafted an unprecedented modernity that set them completely apart from what had been known until then and shook up centuries of convention and academism.
The Grimaldi Forum exhibition is truly exceptional in that it will feature artworks loaned by Russia and which have never previously left the country's museum collections; these remarkable loans will be displayed alongside others from various leading European museums.
