[Luxus+ Magazine] A brief history of luxury: The Morozov brothers’ collection

From September 22, 2021 to February 22, 2022, the Fondation Louis Vuitton will host the impressive modern art collection of the Morozov brothers, two Russian collectors who are passionate about the arts of the late 19th century. Here is a look at this collection of more than 200 works, including paintings by Picasso, Van Gogh, and Monet.
