The display of "Unknown Masterpieces" features works of French painting from the second half of the 19th century that came from private German collections. Removed to the USSR at the end of the Second World War, they could not be shown to the public for many years. On show here are such key works for painting in the 1870s as Place de la Concorde and Interior with Two Figures by Edgar Degas. Here too visitors can see Renoir's paired panels, Man on a Staircase and Woman on a Staircase, Courbet's Reclining Woman, three still lifes by Fantin-Latour and the Hermitage's only work by Honore Daumier The Burden (Washerwoman).
