Leaves of Beauty: Works of Art on Paper (1850-1950)

Works of art on paper, which first came to prominence in the early years of the fifteenth century through the rise in use of silverpoint ink, emerged as a mature genre in the Americas in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. No longer an extension of the preparatory process, drawings became an independent art form created for consumption by a new class of American collectors.
