Collection of Religious Art

The Thrivent Financial Collection of Religious Art, which began in 1982, comprises more than 800 works on paper of religious subject matter. The prints and drawings range from 13th century Illuminated Manuscripts to Early Modern prints, Renaissance and Baroque, to 20th century Modern and German Expressionist prints. Prints by Albrecht Dürer and Rembrandt van Rijn form a large portion of the collection. Other artists included are Lucas Cranach, Hendrik Goltzius, Lucas van Leyden, Édouard Manet, George Bellows, Pablo Picasso and many others. The breadth of this unique and exceptional collection is expressed partly in its diversity of artists and partly in its strength in Old Master prints and drawings

Employees and visitors to the Thrivent Financial corporate headquarters in Minneapolis can enjoy many of the works by visiting the Religious Art Gallery. Hours are Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Curator Joanna Reiling Lindell can be contacted in advance for individual or group tours of the collection.
