One of the Toledo Museum of Art’s best kept secrets, the Works on Paper collection includes nearly 13,000 prints, drawings, photographs and artists’ books. The museum’s broad and diverse collection dates from the 13th century, represented by a fully intact Chinese scroll, to the present and is particularly strong in 16th – 18th century Old Master prints, 19th century French printmaking, 20th century Japanese woodblock prints, and Modern and Contemporary artists’ books.

Its holdings continue to expand through generous gifts and museum purchases, especially in the areas of 20th century and contemporary art. Recent acquisition highlights include works by Nicole Eisenman, James Ensor, David Hockney, Yun-Fei Ji, William Kentridge, Ernst L. Kirchner, Richard Mosse, Alison Saar, Kara Walker, and Carrie Mae Weems, among others.

Though only a small portion are on display at any given time, nearly all are available to the public upon request by appointment in the Grace J. Hitchcock Works on Paper Study Room.
