Morozov art collection goes on display in Paris

The Morozov collection goes on display in Paris

The exhibition brings together Russian and French masters

It includes works by Monet, Renoir, and Mashkov

The collection was built by Russian brothers Ivan and Mikhail Morozov

at the start of the 20th century

It's the first time it has traveled outside of Russia


"This exhibit is composed of pieces that have never been shown in Paris. It's the first time that this collection is reunited here in Paris, and it's really a blessing because some of these works almost got lost during World War Two, including some that have been neglected, rolled up, and kept at minus 40 degrees Celsius."

French President Emmanuel Macron inaugurated the show

The exhibition is part of the "Trianon Dialogue"

an initiative set up to boost cultural ties between France and Russia
