Training the Hand and Eye: American Drawings from the Cooper-Hewitt Collection

On View: 
Sunday, January 22, 1989 to Tuesday, March 7, 1989

Seventy-five sketches and preparatory drawings are on display by 34 leading American artists, including Winslow Homer, Frederic Church, Kenyon Cox, and Thomas Moran. These unfinished works often annotations and notes, which help provide insights into the artistic process. This exhibition features selections from the more than 7,000 American drawings in the Cooper-Hewitt Museum’s permanent collection.
