Masters of American Drawings and Watercolors: Foundations of the Collection, 1904–1922
On view are 75 rarely seen American drawings and watercolors from the superb collection gathered by Carnegie Museum of Art’s first director, John W. Beatty in the first two decades of the 20th century. The light-sensitive nature of works on paper prohibits their regular display, and several objects in this exhibition have rarely been on view. The exhibition includes the work of such well-known artists as Winslow Homer, James McNeill Whistler, William Glackens, and Frederick Childe Hassam.
General support for the exhibition program at Carnegie Museum of Art is provided by grants from the Heinz Endowments and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
