Special Exhibitions

Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo: Master Drawings from the Anthony J. Moravec Collection
Judi and Milt Stewart Hexagon Gallery, first floor
October 1, 2016–February 5, 2017

This exhibition highlights the most important gift of Old Master drawings in the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s seventy-five year history. In 2010, Anthony J. Moravec, a Columbus, Indiana, businessman, donated twenty-four drawings by the eighteenth-century Italian master Giambattista Tiepolo, his son Domenico, and several of their contemporaries. The centerpiece is a group of a dozen drawings from Domenico Tiepolo’s New Testament cycle. These large pen, brush, and ink drawings are not studies for other works, as was more typical of the period but rather unique designs that showcase the artist’s deep understanding of the religious subject matter and his careful observation of the world around him. The exhibition’s guest curator and catalogue author Adelheid M. Gealt–the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s Director Emeritus and an expert on Domenico’s drawings–believes that the series (numbering 320 known sheets) represents a feat unparalleled in the history of art.

October 1, 2016 – February 5, 2017

This exhibition was developed by the High Museum and the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography in collaboration with curator Arthur Ollman, photographer, professor, and founding director of the Museum of Photographic Arts. The Eskenazi Museum of Art’s presentation is made possible in part by generous support from David and Martha Moore, David H. Jacobs, Judi and Milt Stewart, Nancy and Bill Hunt, Del and Letty Newkirk, Jeff and Margaret Jones, and Susan Thrasher.

Gallery of the Art of the Western World, first floor
