While drawing is often described as the most intimate medium of art making, artists often take delight in capturing or imagining pleasurable social gatherings and spirited entertainments. In this seminar, Joachim Homann and Margaret Grasselli will examine a selection of European drawings from the 17th to the early 20th century that exemplify companionship and conviviality. They will also discuss how these works reflect, envision, sanction, or deride closeness between people—whether imaginary or well-observed.
Joachim Homann, Maida and George Abrams Curator of Drawings, Division of European and American Art
Margaret Morgan Grasselli, Visiting Senior Scholar for Drawings, Division of European and American Art
