Print and Drawing Study Rooms

For the well-being of our visitors and staff, the library and its image collections, the print and drawing study rooms, the photograph study room, curatorial records, and Gallery Archives are temporarily closed to the public. We will gladly respond to research inquiries by email, telephone, and regular mail. 

The Gallery's collection of prints, drawings, miniatures, and illustrated books contains over 120,000 European and American works on paper and vellum, dating from the eleventh century to the present day. In addition to its strengths in western art, the Gallery also has a small selection of works on paper from Asia, Latin America, Russia, and the Near East. The Gallery frequently exhibits selected works from its holdings as well as loans from other public and private collections. Please consult the Current Exhibitions schedule for information on such shows.
