From Pontormo to Seurat: Drawings Recently Acquired by The Art Institute of Chicago
April 23, 1991 to July 7, 1991
An exibition of some sixty drawings recently acquired by the Art Institute of Chicago. The drawings included a wide range of works from many countries and periods, including superb examples by such well-known masters as Annibale Carracci, Hubert Robert, Gainsborough, Gericault, Monet, Redon, and Renoir. Among them were also two exceptionally fine landscapes by Claude Lorrain, a brooding, dark self-portrait by Joseph Wright of Derby, and an early Delacroix figure study which might almost be taken for one by Degas.
