Old Masters, Newly Acquired is an exhibition at the Morgan Library and Museum in New York that showcases recent additions to their terrific collection of master drawings.
You can get an idea of the scope of the show from the brochure preview on the museum’s page for the exhibit.
There is also a selection of images, that while not extensive, is notable for the Morgan’s usual and much to be lauded practice of providing very high resolution zoomable images of the works. Unlike the zooming features on many museum websites, this one allows the images to be zoomed in a full screen window instead of a box the size of a playing card.
Once you click on a thumbnail image to open the larger image in a pop-up, click the odd little button to the right of the controls below the image to expand to full screen, then zoom to your heart’s content (even more than the examples I show above). There are labels for the controls accessible through the Zoom help: Show link.
Old Masters, Newly Acquired is on display at the Morgan Library and Museum until October 6, 2013.
