Treasures from the Vault offers a changing selection of works drawn from the Morgan's celebrated collections of medieval manuscripts, printed books and bindings, literary manuscripts, private letters and correspondence, and original music.
The Morgan celebrates the 1913 publication of Swann's Way with a fascinating selection of the author's notebooks, preliminary drafts, galley-proofs, and other documents from the collection of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
Bringing together more than 160 works on paper by such iconic artists as Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Leonora Carrington, and Joan Miró, this is the first major exhibition to explore the central role of drawing in surrealism, one of the most important movements in twentieth-century art.
