Talking Drawings: A Conversation with Collectors
Saturday, January 25, 5pm
Driscoll | Babcock, 22 East 80th Street, Second Floor
Jan Weenix (Dutch, 1639/43 - 1719), Agneta Block (Emmerich 29-10-1629 – Amsterdam 20-4-1704),
and her family at their summer home Vijverhof (later called Flora Batavia), with her cultivated pineapple, 1694,
oil on canvas. Amsterdam Museum.
Following last year’s standing-room-only event, this year’s Collectors Conversation features four women who collect and deal in old master and nineteenth century drawings. Join us for a lively and engaging discussion led by Jennifer Tonkovich, Eugene and Clare Thaw Curator of Drawings and Prints at The Morgan Library & Museum. Collectors will share insights into their philosophy, decision making, goals, and philanthropy, and offer a fresh perspective on the market for master drawings today.
Following the event, participants are encouraged to stay for cocktails and continue the conversation.
Registration is required for this event.
Registration will begin on January 7, 2020.
