Twentieth-Century French Drawings from the Robert Lehman Collection
Szabó, George (1981)
This title is out of print.

This is the eighth exhibition in the series meant to show the complete holdings of old and more recent master drawings in the Robert Lehman Collection. The sixty-three drawings and watercolors included here represent almost every major master of twentieth-century French art as well as some lesser-known artists of the period. A large group of watercolors by Paul Signac and some of his early drawings comprise an interesting and important section of the exhibition. Jacques Villon's draftsmanship is also well documented by a sizable assembly of his early illustrations as well as later drawings. Other painters, like Henri Matisse, Pierre Bonnard, Suzanne Valadon, Albert Marquet, and Maurice de Vlaminck, are also represented by outstanding drawings, many of which have never been exhibited before. An interesting facet of this exhibition is that the Robert Lehman Collection contains important paintings by most of these artists; many of the paintings are on permanent exhibition in the paintings galleries of the Collection.
