Six Centuries of Watercolors and Drawings at the New-York Historical Society
This book highlights over 230 drawings and watercolors from the New-York Historical Society's vast holdings, many clustered around individual artists. The collection spans six centuries, from sixteenth-century avian watercolors and a seventeenth-century Dutch view of New York City, then known as New Amsterdam, to a complex view of the façade of St. Patrick's Cathedral captured from inside Rockefeller Center and representations of the World Trade Center before and after September 11, 2001.
