At the end of April, the Print Council of America—the professional association for curators of works on paper—will hold its annual meeting in Boston and Cambridge. Every year, the conference is in a different city, and every year the host museum puts on a private, one-day display of its very best things. This program, which will involve several members of our curatorial staff, is a preview of the outstanding works with which we hope to impress our visitors. The evening will feature rare 15th-century engravings; Italian Renaissance drawings; prints and drawings by Bellange, Rembrandt, and Seghers; drawings by Fragonard, Piranesi, and Prud’hon; works by Degas and Pissarro, Picasso and Schiele; watercolors by Homer, Sargent, and Demuth; drawings by Johns and Close—and a great deal more. This is a rare opportunity to see some of the choicest highlights of a very deep collection.
