The museum’s exhibition of drawings, watercolors and prints borrowed from Vienna’s Albertina Museum is so good and absorbing that viewers will want to preserve the fragile sense of awe and melancholy it inspires for as long as possible. Here are some images from the show.
Albrecht Durer’s "Saint Jerome in His Study," 1514 engraving. The Albertina Museum’s collection of prints and drawings is one of the largest and finest in the world; its Durer trove is second to none. The National Gallery of Art has borrowed most of the best Durer pieces, more than 90 drawings and watercolors and 27 prints.Courtesy of the Albertina Museum via the National Gallery of Art
