New Loeb Exhibit In Today's Times

The New York Times had this to say about the new exhibit at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center.

"If you asked a group of artists and curators to think of a New York cultural institution with the oldest, most comprehensive collection of watercolors and drawings focused on the New York region, there are many, no doubt, who would say the Metropolitan Museum of Art or even the New York Public Library. But the correct answer is the New-York Historical Society, whose remarkable holdings of more than 8,500 watercolors and drawings has been tapped for a show at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center to celebrate the quadricentennial of the discovery of the Hudson River.

"In conjunction with the New-York Historical Society, the Lehman Loeb has done an excellent job with the educational material, producing detailed wall labels for every work and a printed guide to the artworks in each room. For art scholars, there is also a 500-page catalog documenting a portion of the society’s vast collection."
