Join Julia Tulovsky PhD, Curator of Russian and Soviet Nonconformist Art, as she discusses the museum’s George Riabov Collection of Russian Art, showcasing Russia’s diverse artistic heritage.
The Riabov Collection is the only public collection in the United States that presents an overview of Russian art from the fourteenth century through the twentieth. Works in all media capture the styles and subjects that exemplify Russia’s history and rich artistic heritage.
The Collection was generously gifted by Rutgers alum George Riabov (1925–2013) in honor of his parents Basil and Amelia Riabov. Over the years, it has grown through contributions from many donors, including Ralph and Barbara Voorhees, Norton and Nancy Dodge, Allan and Marion Maitlin, Schering Plough, the Class of 1954, and the Class of 1958.
