Distant Journeys: Willem Dooijewaard’s Drawings of Mongolia and Bali

Exhibition Website

Nov 12 2016 - Jan 22 2017

A personal friend of WCMFA founders William and Anna Brugh Singer, the Dutch artist Willem Dooijewaard (1892-1980) helped the Singers expand their art collections through carefully chosen acquisitions.  Travelling throughout Asia, Indonesia, and North Africa in the 1920s and 1930s, Dooijewaard visited many places that were then unknown to most Americans and Europeans.  This exhibition, featuring 14 large-format drawings by Dooijewaard, captures the young artist’s sense of adventure as well as his fascination with the details and discoveries of exotic lands and peoples.
