Prints and Drawings Affinity Group

The Department of Prints and Drawings cares for a growing collection of some 35,000 works of art ranging from the Middle Ages to the present. Hundreds of artists are represented in this encyclopedic collection, many in considerable depth. Well-known figures include Dürer, Rembrandt, Piranesi, Tiepolo, Goya, Daumier, Whistler, Cassatt, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Kirchner, Rauschenberg, and Ruscha.

The hugely varied collection encompasses prints, drawings, watercolors, pastels, illuminated manuscripts, and printed books. The department organizes about ten exhibitions each year and welcomes hundreds of visitors to the Herschel V. Jones Print Study Room.
