From quick sketches to watercolors, works by artists such as Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Édouard Manet, Jacques-Louis David, Théodore Géricault, and Eugène Delacroix are brought together in the DMA-organized exhibition Mind’s Eye: Masterworks on Paper from David to Cézanne. Drawn from the Dallas Museum of Art’s collection, as well as from several private collections, the exhibition features more than one hundred works on paper, many of which are rarely on view, in various media by seventy artists. Mind’s Eye offers new insights into the working methods and practices of these artists, providing an intimate view of their approach to art making while also presenting the drawings and watercolors as finished works of art in their own right.
Mind’s Eye: Masterworks on Paper from David to Cézanne requires an $8.00 special exhibition ticket. DMA Partners see it free.
Mind’s Eye: Masterworks on Paper from David to Cézanne is organized by the Dallas Museum of Art. Air transportation provided by American Airlines.
