M Collection

New acquisitions highlighted

The M Collection currently comprises more than 52,000 works and counting. In many cases, our new acquisitions are purchased by the museum, but occasionally M also receives donations. But what sorts of works are donated and where do they come from? We are showcasing a few of our donated works and exploring their provenance.
