Past Exhibition: Drawings from the Smith College Museum of Art
Master Drawings from the Smith College Museum of Art opened at The Frick Collection on June 19, 2001. The exhibition, organized by Ann H. Sievers, Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Smith College Museum of Art, featured 68 drawings — all examples of superior draftsmanship — and allowed visitors to view drawings ranging in time from Old Master pieces to the most recent work, Mark Tobey's Echo of 1954. Among those masterpieces included were drawings by Bartolommeo, Boucher, Cezanne, Degas, De Kooning, Fragonard, Gainsborough, Grünewald, Ingres, Matisse, Tiepolo, and van Gogh. The show was on view at The Frick Collection through August 12, before traveling to the Uffizi, Florence where it opened in October 2001. A scholarly catalogue featuring all works in color accompanied the exhibition and was published by Hudson Hill Press.
