Dorothy Braude Edinburg Collection

Max Pechstein (1881-1955) "Three Nudes in the Forest", 1911

It looks to me more like "one nude in the studio" - but it's still a great drawing. Gallery signage tells us that it was done in a small fishing village on the Baltic coast where the artist and his friends from the Brucke retreated from the city.

John Linnell (1792-1882), "Walking through the Field", July 25, 1868

A nice, lively sketch done on one Summer's day by a 76 year old artist as he was walking about.

The A.I.C. showed this collection 8 years ago when Ms. Edinburg first promised it to the museum -- and now it's up again in recognition of it's receipt last August.

Unlike paintings and sculpture which are inaccessible unless shown in the galleries, works on paper are great gifts for museums because they can always be seen by appointment.

The above  pieces are the only two that interest me now -- though the student work of famous artists like Cezanne and Klimt is fascinating for a single viewing.
