Far and Away: Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection

Edited by John Marciari and Jane Shoaf Turner
288 pages
11 4/5 x 9 inches

This beautifully illustrated catalogue presents a selection of exceptional drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection promised to the Morgan Library & Museum during its centennial year.

The drawings assembled by Clement C. (“Chips”) Moore constitute one of the preeminent private collections of Dutch drawing in America. The collection also includes works by Flemish, French, Italian and British artists, ranging from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. These works have long been intended to join the collections at the Morgan Library & Museum, and this exhibition—timed to coincide with the Morgan’s centennial celebrations—makes formal the promised gift.

Published to accompany an exhibition, this catalogue demonstrates the breadth of the Moore Collection with a selection of around eighty works that highlight the principal themes of Dutch art, the various functions and techniques of Dutch drawings, and the connections between Dutch and other European artistic traditions. Works by Hendrick Goltzius, Jacob de Gheyn, Jan Bruegel, Rembrandt van Rijn, Aelbert Cuyp, Jacob van Ruisdael, Peter Lely, Claude Lorrain, Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable are among those featured, examined in essays and catalogue entries by an international team of drawings specialists.

Published by the Morgan Library & Museum in association with Paul Holberton Publishing.
