Fine Lines: American Drawings from the Brooklyn Museum presents a selection of over 100 of the finest, rarely seen drawings and sketchbooks from the Museum’s world-renowned collection of American art. Produced between 1768 and 1945 in a wide range of media (including graphite, pen and ink, crayon, charcoal, and pastel), the featured objects represent a variety of iconographies, styles, and practices in the history of American graphic arts. More than seventy artists are represented, including Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent, Edward Hopper, and Marsden Hartley.

The exhibition is organized into six thematic sections, examining portraiture, nudes, the clothed figure, narrative subjects, and natural and urban environments.  It is accompanied by a scholarly catalogue including interpretive essays, illustrated catalogue entries, and a selected bibliography.

 

Venue Description: Open Wed., Fri.-Sun., 11am-6pm; Thurs., 11am-10pm; First Saturday of each month (except September), 5-11pm. $12; $8, students and seniors (62 & over). Under 19, free (as of 9/3/2014).
