Far and Away: Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection

Exhibition Website

Jun 28 2024 - Sep 22 2024

The drawings assembled by Clement C. (Chips) Moore constitute one of the preeminent collections of Dutch drawings in private hands. 

The collection also includes works by Flemish, French, Italian, British, and American artists, spanning the sixteenth to the twentieth century. The works have long been intended to join the Morgan’s collection, and this exhibition—timed to coincide with the Morgan’s centennial celebration in 2024—makes formal the promised gift. 

The exhibition will demonstrate the breadth of the Moore Collection through a selection of around seventy-five works, grouped thematically to highlight the principal themes of Dutch art, the various functions and techniques of Dutch drawings, and the connections between the Dutch and other European artistic traditions. Works by Hendrick Goltzius, Jacob de Gheyn, Jan Brueghel, Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt, Peter Lely, Claude Lorrain, Thomas Gainsborough, and John Constable are among those featured in the selection.​​

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, authored by an international team of specialists, which reveals the Moore Collection’s significance in enriching and extending the Morgan’s famed holdings of Dutch drawings.
