This informal presentation of paintings and objects from our early 12th to late 19th century European collection offers opportunities for chance encounters and unintentional juxtapositions as we renovate our main European Galleries. 

When the European Galleries reopen in fall 2017, the collection will be displayed to reflect the RISD Museum’s unique position as a center of activity for artists, designers, and makers of all kinds. This continues the RISD Museum’s reinterpretation project initiated in 2009, which has included new galleries for ancient Greek and Roman, ancient Egyptian, and Asian art, as well as costumes and textiles.
