Master Drawings - January 30, 2024


Annual Master Drawings Symposium

Registration for this event will begin on Thursday, January 4 at 12pm Eastern via The Drawing Foundation.

The annual Master Drawings Symposium is returning for its eighth year to showcase the best and brightest young scholars in the drawings field. The program will feature talks by three Ricciardi prize-winning authors published in Master Drawings. The 2023 and 2024 runners-up will begin by presenting their findings.

Luming Guan, Diamonstein-Spielvogel Fellow in the Metropolitan Museum's Department of Drawings and Prints, will offer new insights on a sheet by Martin Schongauer, describing how an intriguing detail led to a fascinating iconographic study. Tom Nevile, Head of Research at Day & Faber, London, will present a corpus of autograph drawings by seventeenth-century Flemish artist Robert van den Hoecke, providing the first comprehensive look at this little-studied master's working method. Finally, in conversation with the Morgan Library's head of drawings and prints, John Marciari, the 2024 Ricciardi prize winner Ian Hicks will discuss his ground-breaking reconsideration of a group of drawings by Giambattista Tiepolo, research that was begun during his term as the Moore Curatorial Fellow at the Morgan (2020-22).
