On display in the Main and Mezzanine galleries, this new exhibition features approximately one-hundred paintings from the Raymond and Susan Johnson’s collection of Russian art. This exhibition will uncover the fascinating story behind building the largest and most comprehensive collection of 20th century Russian art outside of Russia. The collection includes over ten thousand pieces, covering various periods, styles and major artists of the Soviet era. The exhibition will spotlight the structure, sources and scope of the collection through a spectacular display of masterpieces from the Johnson collection.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, and a grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation Minnesota.
