From Delacroix to Signac:
drawings from the Dyke Collection
Exhibit 2012 in Giverny France
Giverny Museum of Impressionisms
From July 27 through October 31, 2012
This exhibition offers about 100 drawings by major French
artists such as Delacroix, Degas, Vuillard, Signac, Bonnard, selected
by James T. Dyke, one of the most astute collectors of 19th
and 20th century European and American drawings.
All these artists worked between 1830 and 1930. They used
different techniques and styles to sketch all sorts of subjects. The
exhibit shows the broad
development of modern draftsmanship in France at a key period from
the Nabis and neo-Impressionists.
The works come either from Dyke's private collection, or from
the donation he made to the National Gallery.
