A rare exhibition is opening in Moscow showcasing artwork that has been hidden in Russia since the end of World War II. Fifty works by Renaissance father-and-son painters the Cranachs are going on display in the Pushkin Museum.
The Pushkin Museum is bringing together Cranach paintings, including many from Germany that had been confiscated by the Soviets after World War II. Years of conflict lie behind the joint Russian-German exhibition.
As a historical Cranach exhibition takes place at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow, the museum's former director Irina Antonova tells DW what it's like to work with looted art hidden in the basement.
The legendary painting marked the beginning of non-objective art: On December 7, 1915, Malevich's "Black Square" was exhibited for the first time. Recent discoveries add new layers to this iconic dark work.
