SERGEI SHCHUKIN’S COLLECTION – THE PICASSO ROOM

Sergei Ivanovich Shchukin (1854 – 1936) was a Russian businessman who became an art collector, mainly of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art.

After the 1917 Revolution, the government appropriated his collection while Shchukin escaped to Paris, where he died in 1936.

Below, a 1914 photograph of Sergei Shchukin’s cabinet at home, called the Picasso Room, which was crowded with almost 50 Picassos.
