Recent Acquisitions of Drawings & Prints
A chance to see a selection of recent additions to the Fitzwilliam’s world-class collection of drawings and prints, including important works that are going on public display for the first time.
Recent Acquisitions of Drawings and Prints brings together over thirty of these recent acquisitions, presenting a choice selection that spans six centuries. Including works by Degas, Guercino, Picasso, Goya and Gauguin, this exhibition presents portrait drawings, Renaissance figurative studies, aquatints, and a rare working design for a sixteenth-century cape.
Also showing drawings and prints by artists as diverse as Baselitz, Modigliani, Frank Auerbach and Howard Hodgkin, this exhibition illustrates the various ways that the Museum’s collections are enriched through individual acts of generosity and funding bodies, sustaining the Fitzwilliam’s core mission to build and develop the collections for future generations.
