Collector Conversations: Talking Drawings

January 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC-5

Over the past twenty-five years, the market for nineteenth-century French drawings has moved from the margins to the center of the drawings field. While works by marquee artists have long been appreciated, the canon has expanded significantly along with the opportunities to acquire excellent sheets by less known draftsmen. Yet the field has not quite approached these works with the same interest as the old masters. This year’s conversation features collectors and curators in conversation about the pursuit of drawings made over the course of a tumultuous century in France. Join us for a lively and engaging discussion led by Jennifer Tonkovich, Eugene and Clare Thaw Curator of Drawings and Prints at The Morgan Library & Museum.

This event is organized by The Drawing Foundation in partnership with the Society for the History of Collecting in association with Master Drawings New York 2024.
