In the spring, the Portland Museum of Art will feature an exhibition devoted to European drawings comprised of 30 works from the Museum’s permanent collection and on loan from private collectors. European Drawings at the Portland Museum of Art, on view March 26 through May 22, 2011, will highlight masterworks by the finest draughtsmen of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. This will be a unique opportunity to see works of art that are rarely exhibited because of the fragile nature of paper. The exhibition is part of Where to Draw the Line: The Maine Drawing Project, a statewide collaboration of 20 arts organizations that will present exhibitions dedicated to the medium of drawing throughout 2011.
