ABOUT RAY JOHNSON
In 1991, Raymond E. Johnson, an art dealer and collector sponsored the first known retail exhibition of Russian Impressionist paintings in North America. The positive response by American collectors to this exhibition encouraged Johnson to launch a large-scale program to identify the finest examples of Russian Realist paintings form throughout the former Soviet Union. Since then, Ray Johnson and his wife Susan have acquired what is believed to be the largest privately owned collection of Russian Realist paintings outside the borders of the former Soviet Union.
The Johnsons recognized the importance of their collection and desiring to create a legacy honoring Russian art, they initiated the idea of a museum dedicated specifically to exhibiting the art of Russia and made significant financial contributions to implement the concept. The Museum of Russian Art opened its inaugural public exhibition in 2002.
