    The Harvard Art Museums’ holdings of European old master and 19th-century drawings rank among the most comprehensive in the United States. As in any such collection, though, certain artists, trends, subjects, or types of drawing remain underrepresented or not represented at all. This talk focuses on four works acquired since 2009 that strengthen areas in the French, Dutch, and German schools. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Recent Acquisitions, Part II: Building the Collection.
