Watercolors and Drawings

Most of the European drawings and watercolors in the museum’s collection have been generously donated. One of the earliest gifts was Henri-Fantin Latour’s The Embroiderers of about 1855–60, presented by Abby Aldrich Rockefeller in 1935. A recent gift, including Paul Klee’s Ship Dreaming of 1915 and Fernand Léger’s The Disk in the City of 1920, was given by Elizabeth E. Craig. The remaining works have been purchased with funds provided by a long list of benefactors. With the support of Florence and Lansing Porter Moore, the museum recently acquired Louis-Léopold Boilly’s exceptional Young Woman Reading in a Landscape of 1798.
