poster for "Drawings and Prints" Selections from the Permanent Collection

This event has ended.

On view will be European works on paper spanning the sixteenth through the twentieth centuries, including a number of recent acquisitions. Among the highlights is a group exploring depictions of gatherings of the Muses and related allegories of the art of painting in prints and drawings by Dutch and German artists around 1600. A selection of later German works focuses on Romantic imaginary landscapes. French art also figures prominently in the installation, with a survey of the development of color techniques in French printmaking in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and a selection of oil sketches on paper by François Boucher and his contemporaries, several of which have been recently cleaned by the Department of Paintings Conservation.
