artists & participants
Ian Woodner (1903 - 1990) formed one of the foremost private collections of old master and modern drawings in the United States. The core drawings of the collection were placed at the National Gallery of Art by Woodner's daughters in 1991, in honor of their father's achievement as a collector. This exhibition celebrates the 15th anniversary of the arrival of the Woodner drawings at the National Gallery and honors the ongoing generosity of Dian and Andrea Woodner, who have already donated many of the core drawings and have augmented the collection with additional gifts. Spanning more than five centuries of European draftsmanship, the show includes outstanding works by such great artists as Sandro Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, Raphael, Rembrandt van Rijn, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Francisco de Goya, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Edgar Degas, and Pablo Picasso.
Organization: Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
