Master Drawings

“The present catalogue highlights a selection of the finest drawings in the collection of the Smith College Museum of Art, beginning chronologically with the silverpoint portrait attributed to Dieric Bouts and ending at the mid-twentieth century… …It is our hope that this volume will stand as a tribute to the many discriminating individuals who shaped the drawings collection of the Smith College Museum of Art and a challenge to those who will guide the collection in the future. (Sievers, 12)”
