Rostopovich Collection to be Exhibited

On May 12, Konstantinovsky Palace in St. Petersburg will open the art collection of Mstislav Rostropovich and Galina Vishnevskaya to the public. Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov purchased the collection in September from Sotheby’s for $72 million. The palace will be the permanent home of the collection, which includes decorative arts and 18th and 19th century paintings. Featured artists include Valentin Serov, Nikolai Roerich, Karl Brullov and others.
