Art on Paper reflects the depth and diversity of the nearly 5,000 objects in the Block Museum’s permanent collection. Featuring culturally important and technologically innovative works on paper by a range of artists—Albrecht Dürer, Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, J. M. Whistler, Mary Cassatt, Wassily Kandinsky, Robert Motherwell, Andy Warhol, Ed Paschke, Robert Mapplethorpe, Laura Letinsky, Sarah Sze, and more—spanning more than seven centuries, the exhibition examines the role of the collection as a cross-disciplinary research and teaching tool at Northwestern.

Support for this exhibition is provided by the Terra Foundation for American Art on behalf of William Osborn and on behalf of David Kabiller; Illinois Arts Council, a state agency; Rubens Family Foundation; and Evanston Arts Council.
