This is the last weekend to see our collection of Rowlandson drawings, donated in the early twentieth century by Dickson Q. Brown, Class of 1895. Brown also donated nearly two thousand Rowlandson prints and all of the artist’s illustrated books to Princeton University Library. Several books from the collection are also on view, most important The Miseries of Human Life by James Beresford (1764-1840), around which Rowlandson drew many satirical plates.
Thanks to the Princeton University Art Museum for hosting our collection through the fall: http://artmuseum.princeton.edu/object-package/miseries-human-life-and-other-amusements-drawings-thomas-rowlandson/112600
