Johnson derived great pleasure and expertise from art books, journals, and auction catalogues. His personal library of nearly 4,000 volumes came to the Museum with his art collection in the 1930s and is still a valued resource for researchers. Included in this display are rare auction catalogues and other treasures from his library.
