This event has ended.

The Robert Wood Johnson, Jr. Gallery displays highlights of European and American prints, drawings, and illustrated books from the Museum’s vast holdings of works on paper. Because of their sensitivity to light, these works cannot be on permanent exhibition; each installation remains on view for approximately thirteen weeks. The rotations of the gallery consist of diverse pieces—new acquisitions as well as works that might not find their way into a major exhibition. They are selected to show the breadth and quality of the Museum’s holdings, ranging from the Renaissance to the present.

Highlights from this rotation include academic figure drawings from the sixteenth through the twentieth century; a large-scale cartoon by Domenichino (Italian, 1581–1641); etchings by the nineteenth-century Spanish artist Mariano Fortuny; Renaissance and Baroque prints bequeathed by Phyllis Massar in 2011; figure studies and lithographs by John Singer Sargent (American, 1856–1925); and prints by American artists Frank Lobdell (1921–2013), Richard Tuttle (born 1941), James Siena (born 1957), and Thomas Nozkowski (born 1944).
