A Demand for Drawings: Five Centuries of Collecting

In conjunction with the exhibition Pierre-Jean Mariette and the Art of Collecting Drawings, the Morgan Drawing Institute, in collaboration with the Center for the History of Collecting at the Frick Art Reference Library, will host a two-day symposium focusing on great collectors of drawings from the Renaissance to the present. Hugo Chapman, Simon Sainsbury Keeper of Prints & Drawings at the British Museum, will deliver a keynote address, and an international panel of scholars will explore key figures and key moments in the history of collecting drawings.
