Intimate Gestures, Realized Visions: Masterworks on Paper from the Collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery

Intimate Gestures, Realized Visions: Masterworks on Paper from the Collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery featured a selection of nearly 200 important 19th- and 20th-century American and European works, all significant but rarely seen drawings, paintings, and collages on paper from the museum's collection. The intimate nature of the media reveals much about the artists’ intentions: some works were meant to be seen as finished pieces, others served to illuminate the creative process leading to completed works in other media.

The accompanying catalogue, Masterworks on Paper from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, is the first book to document this aspect of the museum’s collection. 

The exhibition was organized by Associate Curator Cheryl Brutvan.
