Master Drawings from The Smith College Museum of Art, June 19 through August 12, 2001

The Smith College Museum of Art in Northampton, Massachusetts, is widely acknowledged to have one of the most important college art collections in America, and one of its extraordinary strengths is its renowned collection of master drawings. During the summer of 2001, New York audiences will have the opportunity to view a superb selection of these works on paper -- spanning some six centuries of draftsmanship -- when Smith lends an important selection of these works to The Frick Collection, the only North American venue on an international tour. The exhibition features sixty-eight sheets, ranging from a rare silverpoint drawing of the late fifteenth century attributed to Dieric Bouts, one of the most celebrated of all early Netherlandish portrait drawings, to a 1954 watercolor by Mark Tobey.
