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 the Covid-19 pandemic, the entire first issue of 2022 is a tribute to him.

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.
