Minn. Museum to Loan Russian Paintings

The Museum of Russian Art is loaning 30 paintings to a special exhibition at the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, which is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Union of Russian Artists.

The Tretyakov Gallery, one of Russia’s premier art museums, is also drawing on its own collection for the exhibition, “Styles of Russian Impressionist Painting.”

International art dealer Raymond E. Johnson founded the Museum of Russian Art, which opened last year. The museum said many of the artworks that will be on loan to the Moscow gallery are from Johnson’s private collection.

The exhibit at the Tretyakov Gallery runs from May 30 through August.
