This marks the first time this remarkable collection has been exhibited internationally. OKCMOA will present some of the most important works from the Victoria and Albert’s outstanding collection of Dutch and Flemish drawings, one of the principal holdings in Britain. Showcasing 93 works from the 16th to the 20th centuries, the exhibition includes masterpieces by Rubens, Rembrandt and Sir Anthony van Dyck. Works by lesser-known artists are also included, as well as designs for architecture and the applied arts. The diversity and enduring artistic and technical excellence of Netherlandish artists is on full view. Selected from a collection spanning 400 years, the exhibition includes designs for stained glass, tapestries and prints, alongside portraits, figure studies, genre scenes, landscapes and botanical studies. The drawings are grouped thematically and chronologically to demonstrate contrasts and similarities between the artistic style and practice in the northern and southern Netherlands. Drawings range from sketches to working studies and finished “pictured drawings,” using a variety of mediums and techniques including watercolors, “trois crayons” and pastels.

Other artists featured in the installation include Oscar Brousse Jacobson, Nellie Shepherd, David Fitzgerald and Woody Big Bow.
