    Reuniting the Masters
    European Drawings from West Coast Collections
    November 13, 2016 — February 05, 2017

This innovative exhibition reunites European drawings that have traveled across centuries and continents to different modern collections on the West Coast. By coincidence or by design, drawings by the same artist, for the same project, and even from the same sketchbook, have made their way separately to the West Coast. Bringing these long-estranged drawings together again both illuminates the work and process of specific artists in the rich history of European draughtsmanship and also brings forward the history of drawings collectors, from railroad magnates such as E. B. Crocker to Hollywood actors such as Cary Grant and Vincent Price.
