Johann Karl Simon Morgenstern (1770–1852) was a professor at the University of Tartu after its reopening in 1802. He was the founder of the library and art museum of the university and a remarkable art collector. He bequeathed his collection to the university. This exhibition showcases the prints and engraved gems from the collection, highlighting the main themes of his collection and the scholar’s wide sphere of interest.

This is the third time the collection of Yakov Rubinstein (1900–1983), one of the earliest Soviet art collectors, has been shown in Estonia. The previous exhibitions were held in 1966 and 1978. Rubinstein’s collection was among the most outstanding private collections focusing on the Russian art of the first three decades of the 20th century. Today only a part of the collection remains in the possession of Rubinstein’s family.
