Renowned as a giant of French Romantic painting, Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) was equally a dedicated and an innovative draftsman. 'Devotion to Drawing: The Karen B. Cohen Collection of Eugène Delacroix' explores the central role of drawing in the artist's practice through more than one hundred works — from finished watercolors to sketchbooks, from copies after old master prints to preparatory drawings for important projects. As the first North American exhibition devoted to Delacroix's drawings in more than 50 years, it introduces a new generation to the artist's draftsmanship.
