Dyke is one of the most astute American collectors of 19th- and 20th-century French works on paper. Some 100 drawings and watercolors from his collection showcase the broad development of modern draftsmanship in France, from romanticism and realism through the impressionists, Nabis, and neo-impressionists. Artists working from 1830 to 1930, including Delacroix, Monet, Degas, Cézanne, and Signac, reveal a rich diversity of subjects, styles, and techniques.
