A magnificent group of rarely seen and unpublished sixteenth- through eighteenth-century Italian drawings will be highlighted in Drawn to Drama: Italian Works on Paper, 1500–1800
. Selected from the Clark's impressive collection of Old Master drawings and the private collection of Robert Loper, Drawn to Drama
will offer a unique opportunity to view this special group of Italian drawings that are dramatic in subject, composition, and execution. In March 2004, Mr. Loper was listed by Art and Antiques
as one of the "100 Top Collectors" in America. His collection of Italian Old Master drawings is significant and largely unknown to the public as it has never been published or exhibited. The drawings exhibited in Drawn to Drama
are among the finest in his collection and represent the breadth and quality of its contents. Sixty-five drawings including those by Giorgio Vasari, Guercino, Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, Luca Giordano, and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo are featured in the exhibition.
