“Modigliani, Soutine and other Montparnasse legends”
The Faberge Museum continues the series of colorful and rare expositions.
A unique collection of works of leading painters of the School of Paris from 1900-1930s, gathered by their contemporary patron Jonas Netter, was not available for the masses for more than 70 years – such was the decision of the collector’s family after his death in 1946. Netter was not a rich man and couldn’t buy impressionists’ paintings he saw in the galleries and museums. However, he financed the activities and bought the paintings of not famous yet young painters, such as Amedeo Modigliani, Chaim Soutine, Maurice Utrillo, Moise Kisling, Andre Derain. Nowadays the works of these painters are being acknowledged as the modernism classics and are the jewel of the best museum collections, their lifetime stories transformed into legends.
We should say that the exposition “Modigliani, Soutine and other Montparnasse legends” was formed in 2012 and had great success in several European museums, including the Paris Pinacotheque.
