Far and Away: Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection

Far and Away: Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection


This beautifully illustrated and scholarly catalogue presents a selection of exceptional drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection. It accompanies an exhibition at the Morgan Library & Museum.


The drawings assembled by Clement C. ('Chips') Moore constitute one of the preeminent private collections of Dutch drawing in America. The collection also includes works by Flemish, French, Italian and British artists, ranging from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. These works have long been intended to join the collections at the Morgan Library & Museum, and this exhibition – timed to coincide with the Morgan’s centennial celebrations – makes formal the promised gift.


Accompanying the exhibition, this catalogue will demonstrate the breadth of the Moore Collection with a selection of around eighty works that highlight the principal themes of Dutch art, the various functions and techniques of Dutch drawings, and the connections between the Dutch and other European artistic traditions. Works by Hendrick Goltzius, Jacob de Gheyn, Jan Bruegel, Rembrandt van Rijn, Aelbert Cuyp, Jacob van Ruisdael, Peter Lely, Claude Lorrain, Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable are among those featured.


The catalogue includes an introductory essay by Jane Turner and entries authored by an international team of specialists.
