The Drawing Institute at The Morgan Library & Museum is devoted to the study of the history, collecting, function, interpretation, conservation, and theory of old master and modern drawing with the goal of stimulating new lines of investigation and discourse. The Drawing Institute supports research through annual fellowships; publications; small, focused exhibitions; and an ongoing series of symposia, seminars, and lectures. Cooperative programming and joint fellowships with the IMAF (International Music and Art Foundation) Centre at The Courtauld Gallery in London and with the Menil Drawing Institute and Study Center in Houston are a further component of the Drawing Institute's program. Future plans call for the awarding of an annual prize for a groundbreaking exhibition or publication in the drawings field.
The Drawing Institute is supported by a generous gift from Eugene V. Thaw, a Life Trustee and long-time benefactor of the Morgan and noted drawings collector, and is overseen by Linda Wolk-Simon, Charles W.
