The Gamborg Collection was created during the 1990s and early 2000s, with works from artists in Moscow and other large cities of Russia. The artists in the collection were active in the Soviet Union from the 1920s through the 1970s, and their works cover Russian avant-garde, socialist realism as well as the non-official art of the 1960s and 1970s. The collection contains fine art, mural designs, graphics, prints and posters, as well as a unique assortment of textile and fashion designs of the 1950s and 1960s. Thematically, the collection focuses on topical works telling stories about people and their city or village, work, industry, culture, politics, and works of art illustrating the era and its history as a whole. Specific topics include agriculture, sports, theatre and ballet.
