Landscape Drawings in The Frick Collection

Exhibition Dates:

June 9 through September 13, 2015

Watercolor of a seascape

The recent acquisition of Antoine Vollon’s 1873 watercolor View of Dieppe Harbor, the gift of Dr. Carol Forman Tabler in memory of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alexander A. Forman III, has inspired a presentation of landscape drawings and oil studies from the Frick’s permanent collection. Ranging in date from the 1500s to the late nineteenth century, the selection includes rarely exhibited works by Rembrandt, Claude, Corot, Whistler, and others. For all of these artists, working on paper was a fundamental practice. Whether depicting observed or imagined views, working outdoors or in the studio, they shared a drive to investigate the technical possibilities for representing on paper the textures and intangible atmospheric effects of the three-dimensional world. Landscape Drawings in The Frick Collection is organized by Joanna Sheers Seidenstein, Research Assistant at The Frick Collection, and will be on view in the Frick’s Cabinet gallery.
