Mantegna to Matisse: Master Drawings from The Courtauld Gallery
October 30, 2012 through January 20, 2013
In keeping with its tradition of presenting masterworks from collections outside of New York, this fall The Frick Collection presents fifty-eight drawings from The Courtauld Gallery, London. This exhibition marks the first time that so many of the principal drawings in The Courtauld’s renowned collection—one of Britain’s most important—have been made available for loan. The prized sheets—many of which have never been shown in New York— represent a survey of the extraordinary draftsmanship of Italian, Dutch, Flemish, German, Spanish, British, and French artists active between the late Middle Ages and the early twentieth century.
