"Becoming Modern: 19th-Century French Drawings from the Morgan Library and Museum and the Menil"

This exhibit celebrates the remarkable holdings of two American art institutions and deepens their ongoing collaboration. Presenting 42 works on paper selected exclusively from the collections of the Morgan and the Menil, "Becoming Modern" explores an historic shift in the medium of drawing in the 1800s, from its traditional preparatory function based on emulating the past, to a new role as an independent and often experimental practice.
