PRINTS AND DRAWINGS
The collection of prints and drawings spans the history of European and American works of art on paper from the 15th century to the present and covers a wide variety of media, from manuscript illumination to digital prints. Highlights include significant holdings by Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt van Rijn, George Caleb Bingham, and Max Beckmann. There are also strong holdings of prints and drawings by post-war American and German artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Louise Bourgeois, Sigmar Polke, and Gerhard Richter.
Works on paper are exhibited on a rotating basis and can also be viewed by appointment in the Study Room for Prints, Drawings, and Photographs

Elizabeth Wyckoff began at the Saint Louis Art Museum as the curator of prints, drawings and photographs in December 2010. She worked previously at the Davis Museum and Cultural Center, Wellesley College, the New York Public Library, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She received her PhD from Columbia University with a specialization in early 17th-century Dutch prints.
Elizabeth has organized and co-organized exhibitions of old master to contemporary prints, books, and drawings, including topics ranging from the reception of tobacco in early modern Europe to oversize Renaissance prints; from 16th- and 17th-century Italian, Dutch, and Flemish prints to 18th- & 19th-century American city views to a site-specific installation by Christine Hiebert; and an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper by Fred Sandback. Future projects include several exhibitions in the Museum's new works-on-paper exhibition galleries, and a project that considers the development of 17th-century Dutch landscape and genre in paintings, drawings, and prints.
