Eighth Annual Master Drawings Symposium

On January 30 Master Drawings once again held its annual symposium during Master Drawings New York 2024 showcasing the best and brightest young scholars in the drawings field.

Luming Guan, Diamonstein-Spielvogel Fellow in the Metropolitan Museum’s Department of Drawings and Prints, offered new insights on a sheet by Martin Schongauer, describing how an intriguing detail led to a fascinating iconographic study. Tom Nevile, Head of Research at Day & Faber, London, presented a corpus of autograph drawings by seventeenth-century Flemish artist Robert van den Hoecke, providing the first comprehensive look at this little-studied master’s working method. In conversation with the Morgan Library & Museum’s Head of Drawings and Prints, John Marciari, the 2024 Ricciardi prize winner Ian Hicks discussed his ground-breaking reconsideration of a group of drawings by Giambattista Tiepolo.

Thank you to our hosts, The Drawing Foundation in association with Master Drawings New York 2024, and additional thanks the Tavolozza Foundation, whose generous support made the event possible.
