The Draftsman's Art: Master Drawings from the National Gallery of Scotland
December 12, 2000
to February 25, 2001
A survey of five centuries of draftsmanship by Italian, Flemish, Dutch, British, French, and German artists, this exhibition brought together seventy-three works on paper culled from the National Gallery of Scotland's premier collection of some fourteen thousand sheets. Spanning the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries, The Draftsman's Art included examples by masters such as Leonardo, Raphael, Rubens, Boucher, Blake, Ingres, and Seurat. Guest Curator Michael Clarke's selection featured drawings little known in the United States, providing a rare viewing opportunity.
