Drawing on Strength: Recent Acquisitions of European Drawings
Gallery Talk

William W. Robinson, Maida and George Abrams Curator of Drawings, Division of European and American Art, Harvard Art Museums

The Harvard Art Museums’ holdings of European old master and 19th-century drawings rank among the most comprehensive in the United States. As in any such collection, though, certain artists, trends, subjects, or types of drawing remain underrepresented or not represented at all. This talk focuses on four works acquired since 2009 that strengthen areas in the French, Dutch, and German schools. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Recent Acquisitions, Part II: Building the Collection.

Free with price of admission. Admission is free to MA residents on Saturdays before noon.

Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
