The Morgan Library & Museum presents Dutch drawings at "Far and Away: Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection."

The drawings assembled by Clement C. (Chips) Moore constitute one of the preeminent collections of Dutch drawings in private hands. The collection also includes works by Flemish, French, Italian, British, and American artists, spanning the sixteenth to the twentieth century. The works have long been intended to join the Morgan’s collection, and this exhibition—timed to coincide with the Morgan’s centennial celebration in 2024—makes formal the promised gift.

The exhibition will demonstrate the breadth of the Moore Collection through a selection of around seventy-five works, grouped thematically to highlight the principal themes of Dutch art, the various functions and techniques of Dutch drawings, and the connections between the Dutch and other European artistic traditions.

Works by Hendrick Goltzius, Jacob de Gheyn, Jan Brueghel, Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt, Peter Lely, Claude Lorrain, Thomas Gainsborough, and John Constable are among those featured in the selection.
