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 includes works from as early as the 13th century, represented by a fully intact Chinese scroll, to the present. It 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. The museum’s holdings continue to expand through generous gifts and significant purchases, notably in the areas of 20th-century and contemporary works on paper.
