A forthcoming exhibition at the Royal Academy in London, of major artworks from Russia’s most prestigious museums, is under threat after Russian authorities withdrew its loan of several pieces. They have voiced fears that the paintings could be seized in legal battles over their rightful ownership.
The Royal Academy of Arts is due to open its 13-week show, From Russia: French and Russian Master Paintings 1870-1925, next month, displaying together for the first time in the UK more than 120 works such as The Dance, by Henri Matisse in 1910, and Maternity (Women on the Seashore), by Paul Gauguin, in 1898. Other paintings include works by Renoir, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Picasso and Kandinsky.
