Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg announces Recent Acquisitions

Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg presents Recent Acquisitions. Prints, Drawings and Photographs, an exhibition on view October 26 – March 2, 2014.

The collection has grown by more than 1,100 works since the Hazel Hough Wing opened in 2008. This is in addition to a gift of approximately 15,000 photographs from The Ludmila Dandrew and Chitranee Drapkin Collection. Recent Acquisitions is strong in nineteenth-and twentieth-centruy art, much like the collection as a whole.

More than 40 exceptional works on paper and photographs, all added in the last five years, will be displayed. The drawings and prints are by such significant artists as Jennifer Bartlett, Leonard Baskin, Carol Dameron, Elaine de Kooning, Wenceslaus Hollar, Rebecca Sexton Larson, Richard Basil Mock, Pierre-Jospeh Redouté, Milton Resnick, Georges Rouault, Jovi Schnell, Charles White, and Ossip Zadkine.

The photography collection is one of the largest and most important in the Southeast and will be admirably represented in this exhibition. Included are choice images by George Booth, George Dureau, Sylvie Eyberg, Ernst Hass, Jason Hailey, Thomas J. Kramer, Amanda Means, Arno Minkkinen, Edward Steichen, and Shen Wei.
