There are more than 2,400 artworks in the Raymond Jonson Collection. The largest and most significant portion is composed of 600 paintings and drawings by Raymond Jonson selected by the artist in 1978 as most representative of his 65 year career.  Other artists in  the collection include Agnes Martin, Elaine DeKooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Josef Albers and members of the Transcendental Painting Group (1938-1942), co-founded by Jonson and Taos painter Emil Bisttram. A student collection consists of artworks by many of Jonson’s students during his 20 year tenure as professor of art (1934-1954).

The University of New Mexico Art Museum holds the copyright to all of Raymond Jonson’s works.  The museum’s archival holdings include an extensive group of letters, articles, photographs, and other documents by and about Jonson, the Chicago Little Theatre, and the Transcendental Painting Group.
