Russia: collectors, art and music of the early 20th century

After almost two centuries of French influence in Russia, the first decades of the 20th century saw and heard the development of a visual and performance culture drawing upon the sights and sounds of native Russia. In this series we look at the collections of Sergei Shchukin and Ivan Morozov, some of the artists they collected, performances and composers of the time and the Russian avant garde.
