Lecture: Near, Far, and Away: A Closer Look at Dutch Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection

Friday, September 13, 2024 6–7 PM

Advance registration is encouraged but not required.

Explore the fascinating, wide-ranging, and sometimes unexpected themes that connect the drawings in Far and Away: Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection, one of the preeminent collections of Dutch drawings now on view at the Morgan.

Sarah Mallory, Annette and Oscar de la Renta Assistant Curator of Drawings and Prints, will discuss details central to our understanding of these works and the seventeenth-century context in which they were created. Insights into environmental and colonial histories, ongoing wars of religion and state, and life for women in the Dutch Republic provide a lens for close looking and may resonate with modern viewers today.

This lecture takes place in Gilder Lehrman Hall on the Ground Floor. Doors to the Hall open 30 minutes before the program begins, and seating is on a first come, first served basis. Far and Away: Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection can be viewed before the program. Free admission begins at 5 PM.
