While the world is shaken by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and sanctions are taken by the European Union, the Louis Vuitton Foundation has confirmed the extension of the Morozov exhibition.
The Louis Vuitton Foundation has just confirmed the extension of the Morozov Collection exhibition until April 3, 2022. The paintings, which have been on display since September 22, 2021, are largely owned by Russian museums or owners. These exceptional works of Modern Art had been nationalized by Lenin in 1918, following the Bolshevik revolution. The collection, which brings together 200 French and Russian works by the Moscow brothers Mikhail Abramovich Morozov and Ivan Abramovich Morozov, may well remain in France longer than expected in light of recent events.
In Russia, the Hermitage Museum, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, the Russian National Museum, the Tretyakov Gallery and the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation are among the partners of the event. Some of the exhibited works also belong to the Belarusian National Museum of Fine Arts in Minsk, and the Dnipropetrovsk Museum of Fine Arts in Ukraine. “According to the law in force since August 10, 1994, the French state cannot sequester these paintings, pastels and sculptures because they belong to foreign public institutions,” explains lawyer Olivier de Baecque, a specialist in art law. In addition, a decree of unseizability was taken on February 19, 2021 by the Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Culture concerning the arrival of works in France. “Before each exhibition, it is sufficient to promulgate an order of unseizability, and to extend the device in case of prolongation of the event. ”
