23 Jun 16
Russian art collector Andrey Filatov has agreed to a twelve-year arrangement with UK’s Beaulieu Palace House that involves creating a permanent exhibition of his Art Russe foundation’s collection, Sophia Kishkovsky of Art Newspaper reports.
“I want the public to admire the masterpieces of Russian art, rather than keeping my collection in a dedicated warehouse,” Filatov said. Moving the artwork to the UK “will allow thousands of visitors every year to learn more about the depth of Russian art.” Founded in 2012, the Art Russe foundation, has a collection of 200 paintings and sculptures spanning from the late nineteenth century to the 1990s. New works will be displayed every four months.
Located in Hampshire, the Beaulieau Palace House is the home of Lord Montegu. It also hosts the National Motor Museum. Lord Montagu said, “In the past, many stately home owners, including my ancestors, collected art from around the world, and so it is entirely appropriate I should be continuing that tradition by hosting this collection at Beaulieu.”
