Sweden Displays Russian Paintings Lost After the Revolution

The Museum of Fine Arts in Malmo, Sweden, has opened the exposition of Russian artists paintings of the 1880-1914.
      The paintings were part of Baltic Exhibition held in this museum in 1914. Back then six large halls were displaying works by Ivan Bilibin (1876-1942), Konstantin Korovin (1861-1939), Boris Kustodiev (1878-1927), Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin (1878-1939), Ilya Repin (1844-1930), Ivan Shishkin (1832-1898), Mikhail Vrubel (1856-1910), and other prominent Russian artists.
      After the October Revolution the paintings were left in Sweden. Later many canvasses were lost. At present the museum has only 59 paintings from that collection.
