THE COLLECTOR

by Natalia Semenova with André Delocque

The collector is Sergei Shchukin, a nineteenth-century textile merchant with a great eye for beauty. He was the first collector to conceive a Museum of Modern Art and his collection, which included Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, was seen as revolutionary at the time, inspiring awe and ridicule in equal measure. This is the first time his story has been available in English.

£25 Hardback
