Banned: Savitsky and the secret hoard of Avante Garde Art

Despite the flourishing of Russian Avante Garde Art early in 20th century, as Stalin rose to power he banned all but Socialist Realist expressions of art.  Igor Savitsky ignored the ban, travelled throughout the Soviet Union buying, bribing and cajoling until he amassed the second largest collection of Russian Avante Garde Art in the world.
