Collecting art is itself a fine art. Join us as George Abrams, one of today’s most accomplished collectors, tells us about his decades-long pursuit of 17th-century Dutch drawings. The Abrams collection, which has been featured in many exhibitions at the MFA, the Harvard Art Museums, and farther afield, is among of the finest of its kind. Learn about the origins and development of George and Maida Abrams’s fascination for Dutch drawings, and see some of the collection’s treasures here in the Morse Study Room.
