Drawn to Greatness Exhibition

Published on December 21, 2017

This exhibition highlights more than 150 master drawings from the Thaw Collection, one of the world’s finest private collections containing over 400 works on paper. Assembled over the last fifty years, and made a promised gift to the Morgan Library in 1975, the collection has now been given in full to the museum by Life Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare.

Drawn to Greatness focuses on pivotal artists and key moments in the history of draftsmanship. Works by major masters from the Renaissance to the modern era will be on view, including Mantegna, Rubens, Rembrandt, Canaletto, Piranesi, Watteau, Fragonard, Goya, Ingres, Turner, Daumier, Redon, Degas, and more.

The exhibition runs until January 7, 2018 at the Morgan Library located on 225 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10016.
