Paris is still the art center of the world. This notion was reinforced this year by a unique and massive exhibition currently mounted by Fondation Vuitton (a vibrant modern art museum in its own right) that provides a unique chance to learn about the history of modern art. “The Morozov Collection: Icons of Modern Art” exhibition reunites the finest Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings collected by the Morozov brothers at the turn of the 20th century, following these artworks’ dispersal among Russian museums for almost a century.
