Menil Collection says
In the late nineteenth century, artists began to practice drawing not as an academic model or as preparation for painting and sculpture, but as the most intimate media and as a means of personal expression. Co-curator of Becoming Modern, the new exhibition presented by the The Morgan Library & Museum and the Menil Drawing Institute, Jennifer Tonkovich will focus on French artists Delacroix, van Gogh, Seurat, C├ęzanne, and Redon, showing how each developed the distinctions that marked his drawings as works of true artistic invention and powerful independence.

Celebrating the remarkable holdings of the Morgan and the Menil, Becoming Modern is on view through June 14. Tonkovich is the Eugene and Clare Thaw Curator in the department of drawings and prints at the Morgan.
