North Pavilion, Plaza Level

This is a past event

The Museum recently made one of the most spectacular acquisitions in its history, purchasing a collection of sixteen drawings from a private collector. The group features exceptional sheets by many of the most celebrated draftsmen in European art history, including Michelangelo, Andrea del Sarto, Domenico Tiepolo, Goya, and Degas. This exhibition presents the drawings together with an exquisite painting by Antoine Watteau, La Surprise, acquired from the same celebrated collection.
