Images from The Rawlins Gallery

Rawlins Gallery Entrance

Many of the NMM's stringed instruments are shown in the Rawlins Gallery which one enters through iron gates designed and hand-forged by R. Walsh of Minneapolis. The gates are a gift of Constance Hampl (1906-1983) of Vermillion.

Showpieces equal to those found anywhere...rare, 16th-century violins, violas, and 'cellos from the north Italian cities of Brescia and Cremona, decorated for French kings and Italian nobility...suberb lutes and guitars made of ivory and ebony to celebrate the splendor of Venice...a true panoply of priceless treasures to delight the senses.
