The McNay has long been known for its collection of drawings and watercolors by American modernists, especially those artists who were represented by the great New York art dealer and promoter Alfred Stieglitz. The Museum has also steadily acquired works on paper by artists active during the second half of the twentieth century and early twenty-first century. This exhibition is visitors’ first opportunity to see a selection of this little-known strength of the McNay in a single exhibition.


A highlight is a group of fantastic drawings bequeathed to the Museum by Robert Halff, a San Antonio native who became a highly successful advertising executive and prescient art collector in his adopted hometown of Los Angeles. The exhibition includes approximately 30 works, including drawings by Leonardo Drew, David Hockney, Beth van Hoesen, Yvonne Jacquette, Donald Judd, Ed Ruscha, and Andy Warhol.
