Showcasing rarely-exhibited drawings by Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and others, this exhibition surveyed the artistic experimentation centered in Paris during the last two centuries. The eighty works in the show elegantly traced the intersections between traditional media and modern interpretation. Organized by Art Services International, Alexandria, Virginia.
