Summary:
"The New York Historical Society's drawing collection is one of the earliest assembled in the United States, yet its trove of more than 8,000 sheets and 75 rare sketchbooks and albums is surprisingly little known. Drawn by New York highlights over 230 of the Society's vast holdings, many clustered around individual artists."--Jacket.
