Close study of drawing materials—pastels, crayons, chalks, pencils, pens, inks and watercolors—lends insight to the creative approaches of artists and helps viewers understand works of art within the context of their period. This exhibition of some twenty drawings, watercolors, and pastels from the Museum's collections illustrates the brilliant use of materials by master artists, including William Blake, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, and Vincent van Gogh. It coincides with the 28th Annual Conference of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works.
