The Montparnasse salon of aristocratic Russian emigrès Baroness Helene d’Oettingen and Sergey Yastrebtsov was in the 1910s a prominent artistic hub for writers, poets, musicians, artists and art critics of the Paris avant-garde. In honor of this prolific bohemian period, Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts has teamed with Center Pompidou and City of Paris Museum of Modern Art to recreate the salon’s splendor for a modern audience, exhibiting upwards of 40 paintings, 50 drawings and archival designs and documents – products of the Paris heyday.
