Art Works from the extensive private collection of the renowned art historian. Over the course of a long and distinguished career as an art historian, Alfred Moir has expanded our knowledge of artists working in the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries, and his painstaking research has yielded new attributions for a wide range of works. Over the past three decades, he has amassed an impressive private collection of master drawings, primarily old master Italian drawings but including drawings by French, Dutch, Russian, German, Austrian, English, Flemish, and Spanish artists working into the early twentieth century. To celebrate his seventy-sixth birthday, Moir has lent seventy-six drawings from his collection to an exhibition that debuts at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in the spring of 2000 and will go on to museums in Pennsylvania, California, and Louisiana.
Comprised of black and colored chalks, pen and ink drawings, brush and ink work, and watercolors, the drawings reproduced in this catalog of the exhibition capture the breadth of Renaissance drawing and reflect Moir's own interests and passions as an art historian and collector. Richard J. Campbell was the John E. Andrus II Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Jane Immler Satkowski was a research associate at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
Distributed and published for the Minneapolis Institute of Art in 2000.
