CONTEMPORARY ART WORLD MEETS THE OLD IN NEW EXHIBITION AT THE MORGAN LIBRARY & MUSEUM

Georg Baselitz, Ellsworth Kelly, Giuseppe Penone, and Dorothea Rockburne connect their work to that of the Morgan's old masters.

**Press Preview: Thursday, October 11, 2007, 10 a.m. until noon**

New York, NY, August 31, 2007—In an exhibition that links the old and new in unique and unexpected ways, four renowned contemporary artists have chosen works from The Morgan Library & Museum's superb collection of old master drawings to compare and contrast with works from their own hand. The show, featuring the artists Georg Baselitz (b. 1938), Ellsworth Kelly (b. 1923), Giuseppe Penone (b. 1947), and Dorothea Rockburne (b. 1932), demonstrates not only what contemporary art owes to the art of the past but also how our interpretation of earlier art is indebted to contemporary practices.

Entitled Drawing Connections: Baselitz, Kelly, Penone, Rockburne, and the Old Masters, the exhibition is on view at the Morgan from October 12, 2007, through January 6, 2008. Download PDFs:
