One-off

The story of an incredible collection of modern art, amassed in the early 20th century, in Moscow, by a textiles trader. 

Featuring 37 works by Matisse and 49 by Picasso, the Shchukin collection was later to be dispersed, and Shchukin’s name erased from history.
After a century of oblivion, the documentary recounts the story of the collector’s life and, for the first time, reveals the tragic destiny of his collection and its rediscovery.
