The exhibition “Among Friends” explores the past of the Museum of Fine Arts (MSK) and focuses on donors and legatees of old and modern art.

The spotlight is on dozens of collectors who ensured the future of their passion by donating their objects to the museum, thus enriching the museum’s collection. The exhibition links objects in the museum to artworks owned by contemporary private collectors, with whom the museum has forged close ties.
