Next year, with the publication of volume 60, Master Drawings will celebrate its Diamond Jubilee. To mark the occasion and to thank our president, Chips Moore, for leading us successfully through what will have been a difficult twenty-two-month period as the world battled Covid-19, we will devote the entire first issue of 2022 as a surprise tribute to him. To mirror his passion as a collector of Dutch drawings, the issue will be primarily devoted to that field.

Will you please help contribute to this effort?

The issue will include more than twenty-five of the most active scholars in the Dutch field, including Peter Schatborn, Bill Robinson, Holm Bevers, Jeroen Giltaij, Michiel Plomp, Greg Rubinstein, and our own Jane Turner. Topics include drawings by Rembrandt, Dujardin, Jan van de Velde, and many others.

Chips’ service to Master Drawings began back in 2005, after which he became treasurer in 2007. In 2015 he became the president and led the journal through numerous changes, such as the hiring of new staff, myriad technological updates, including the launch of a new website, and finding solutions to the logistical problems and restrictions created by Covid-19, notably, the foray into digital publication. Most recently, Chips hosted our 2021 virtual benefit with humor and grace. Please join us in thanking him for his devotion to the journal, and to the greater drawings community.

Nothing would please him more than a contribution to Master Drawings!

* Please remember this is a surprise for Chips and the issue and the generosity of all of you will be revealed to him on the occasion of our annual fund-raiser on January 24, 2022! A tabula gratulatoria will appear within the issue.
