"A Century of Drawing: Works on Paper from Degas to LeWitt"
2001-11-18 until 2002-04-07
National Gallery of Art
This exhibition presents for the first time the most outstanding 20th-century drawings in the National Gallery, including promised gifts from private collections.
Examples by great old masters who created some of their most powerful work after the turn of the century--Edgar Degas, Auguste Rodin, and Winslow Homer--are shown side by side with works by the younger generation of artists, such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. European masterworks are installed next to some of the Gallery's greatest American drawings, including works by Charles Sheeler, Edward Hopper, Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, and Jasper Johns.
