The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, holds one of the world's finest collections of French art from 1860 to 1950. Now, for the first time, art lovers can marvel at the full scope of the museum's magnificent holdings in this field, and read about how the collection was created. This extravagantly illustrated book showcases all of the Hermitage's celebrated Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterworks-by Monet, Renoir, Czanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, and others-as well as an astounding 60 works by Matisse and 40 by Picasso. But it also features a panoply of paintings by other artists-among them Bonnard, Vuillard, Dufy, and Derain-plus a trove of never-before-seen treasures, including works in storerooms, paintings on canvas backs, and five works-by Utrillo, Rouault, and others-acquired through a recent gift to the museum from Boris Yeltsin.
