Exhibition Supported by the Jerome L. Greene Foundation
Morgan Library & Museum offers New Yorkers a rare viewing of great works from The Nationalmuseum of Stockholm’s largest and most distinguished art institution.
The collection was assembled by the Swedish diplomat and collector Count Carl Gustav Tessin (1696 – 1770) while he was serving on assignment in Paris. The over 75 masterpieces includes 14 paintings and 60 drawing by such renowned artists as Dürer, Boucher, Rembrandt, Rubens and Watteau. These distinguished works have not been seen outside of Stockholm since Tessin brought them to Sweden in 1742.
(Treasures from the Nationalmuseum of Sweden: The Collections of Count Tessin will be at the Morgan Library and Museum from February 3, 2017 – May 14, 2017).
