Drawings and Prints

Selections from the Permanent Collection

The Robert Wood Johnson, Jr. Gallery displays highlights of European and American prints, drawings, and illustrated books from the Museum's vast holdings of works on paper. Because of their sensitivity to light, these works cannot be on permanent exhibition; each installation remains on view for approximately thirteen weeks.

Art Exhibition previously on at Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, United States.
From Tuesday 23 June 2015 to Monday 28 September 2015

The rotations of the gallery consist of diverse pieces—new acquisitions as well as works that might not find their way into a major exhibition. They are selected to show the breadth and quality of the Museum’s holdings, ranging from the Renaissance to the present.

Highlights from this rotation include engravings by the Renaissance printmaker Giovanni Jacopo Caraglio (Italian, ca. 1500/1505–1565); Italian and French ceiling designs; new acquisitions of designs for gold- and silversmith’s work; recently acquired French drawings of the Neoclassical period; 1930s shoe designs by Erté (French [born Russia], 1892–1990) for Delman’s Shoes, New York; prints and a drawing by Lucian Freud (British, 1922–2011); and a selection of prints by Brice Marden (American, born 1938).
