On Paper: Figure Drawings from the Thomas E. Benesch Memorial Collection

From April 20, 2014 — September 14, 2014

There are as many approaches to the human figure as there are artists. See ten compelling variations of the figure from contemporary masters in the latest On Paper exhibition. The intimate presentation features drawings from artists such as David Hockney, Willem de Kooning, Robert Rauschenberg, and others.

The exhibition is drawn from the Museum’s Thomas E. Benesch Memorial Collection, a group of more than 140 outstanding drawings by international contemporary artists. These works are shown in the Contemporary Wing gallery dedicated to the presentation of the BMA’s renowned holdings of prints, drawings, and photographs.
