Russia Is Wondering How to Get Its $1.5 Billion Art Collection Home

Updated: Mar 18

The Russian ambassador to France has voiced concern over the return of the $1.5 billion Morozov collection, which is currently on view at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. The show, slated to close on April 3, includes 200 masterpieces by Van Gogh and Picasso, among others. “It is not a secret that, given the current situation and all the drastic measures that have been taken, including on flights between Russian and France, there are problems,” Russian diplomat Aleksey Meshkov said. The works are on loan from the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, the Pushkin Museum in Moscow, as well as institutions in Belarus and Ukraine. (Bloomberg)
