Important Works on Paper from the Permanent Collection: New Selections
Davidson and Colefax galleries now feature a third selection of works on paper drawn from the Museum’s rich collections of 20th-century American art, Japanese woodblock prints, and photography. In Colefax gallery, works by major American artists Milton Avery and Yasuo Kuniyoshi in charcoal, lithography, and watercolor complement paintings by both artists on display in Preston Morton gallery next door, as well as an important new gift by Lea and Eli Luria. In Davidson gallery, a selection of 19th-century Japanese prints featuring scenes of snow, wind, and rain highlights how printmakers such as Hokusai, Hiroshige, Yoshitoshi, and others captured the atmospheric effects of weather. Finally, a series of delicate Sea Etchings by photographer Nicola Dill, alongside mesmerizing ocean and lunar scenes by Robbert Flick and Kazuumi Takahashi, complete the selection.
