Seldom Seen: A Selection of Prints, Drawings, and Decorative Art | Until August 17, 2014

Museum storerooms are filled with artworks that are rarely or never put on public display. This is especially true for the Dumbarton Oaks Museum’s House Collection, where only a small fraction of its holdings is exhibited in the Music Room. This temporary exhibition introduces a number of works out of storage. These include light-sensitive artworks—works on paper, textiles, and tooled leather—as well as several metal objects that have never before been on public display. The exhibition closes August 17, 2014.
