Michelangelo to Picasso: Master Drawings from the Collection of the Albertina, Vienna
This spring, visitors to The Frick Collection will have the opportunity to view works representing five hundred years of the highest achievement in the draftsman's art by such masters as Dürer, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Rubens, Rembrandt, van Gogh, Klimt, Picasso, Chagall, Schiele, and Pollock. The Frick Collection is the only American venue for the special exhibition, Michelangelo to Picasso: Master Drawings from the Collection of the Albertina, Vienna, which opens on April 18 and remains on view through June 18, 2000. The Graphische Sammlung Albertina (Graphic Art Collection Albertina) is one of Europe's greatest repositories of works on paper. This exhibition features forty-five master drawings and watercolors, many of which have never left Austria or are only very rarely on view. The works selected are not only of the highest quality, but are representative of several different eras of collecting at the institution -- from the Age of Enlightenment to the present day.
