(between Madison and 5th)
Please visit the Lyman Allyn in New York City as part of Master Drawings New York, an annual art world event! From January 20 to 28, 2017, a select group of drawings from the Lyman Allyn’s permanent collection will be on view at the Academy Mansion at 2 East 63rd street in Manhattan. Admission is free. The Lyman Allyn is the sole museum on site, complementing four commercial gallery exhibitions in the same building, twenty affiliated gallery exhibitions on the Upper East Side, and important drawing sales taking place at Christie’s, Sotheby’s and other auction houses.
Master Drawings from the Lyman Allyn Art Museum features just over a dozen drawings and watercolors from the 15th century through the early 20th century, including work by Federico Zuccaro, Abraham Bloemaert, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, Eugène Delacroix, and Thomas Wilmer Dewing. The exhibition is a collaborative effort made possible by the generous assistance of Christopher Bishop of Bishop Fine Art, Sarah Dove of Sarah Dove Fine Art Conservation, and Allison Wucher of Master Drawings. Particular thanks goes to the Master Drawings organization for their support, as well as to Sarah Dove and to Mara Beckwith of Studio M Framing for their generous donations to the project. We are pleased to share these works with a wider public. Because of their delicate and light-sensitive nature – not to mention the Lyman Allyn’s focus on American art – many of these drawings have not been displayed in recent years.
