The Eveillard Gift
The Eveillard Gift, at our partner institution, the Frick Madison, was inspired by the museum’s largest and most significant acquisition of drawings and pastels in its history. Twenty-six works (eighteen drawings, five pastels, two prints, and one oil sketch) are the gift of Elizabeth “Betty” and Jean-Marie Eveillard. Artists represented in the collection include François Boucher, Edgar Degas, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, Thomas Lawrence, and Jean-François Millet. The gift also includes works by artists previously unrepresented in the museum’s permanent collection, such as Gustave Caillebotte, Maurice Quentin de La Tour, Jan Lievens, John Singer Sargent, and Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun. The drawings will be on view as a group until February 26, 2023.
