What is jewelry? Why do we wear it? What meanings does it carry? Traversing time and space, this exhibition explores how jewelry acts upon and activates the body it adorns. This global conversation about one of the most personal and universal of art forms brings together some 230 objects drawn almost exclusively from The Met collection.

    Devotion to Drawing: The Karen B. Cohen Collection of Eugène Delacroix
    Renowned as a giant of French Romantic painting, Eugène Delacroix (1798 - 1863) was equally a dedicated and an innovative draftsman. Through a selection of more than one hundred works on paper--from finished watercolors to sketchbooks, from copies after old master prints to preparatory drawings for important projects--this exhibition explores the central role of drawing in Delacroix's practice.
