A Winter’s Tale

The Poet’s Dream, Robert Weir, c. 1830/Detroit Institute of Arts Collection

The Detroit Institute of Arts is currently holding an exhibition called, “Once Upon a Time: Prints & Drawings that Tell Stories” which runs from December 21, 2011 thru May 13, 2012. The exhibition features works that have rarely or never been seen at the museum before.

Some examples on display, (from the DIA website): David Hockney’s etchings from Six Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm, a volume of Moby Dick with illustrations by Norman Rockwell, a copy of the 15th-century Nuremberg Chronicle, Wassily Kandinsky’s Klange, Henri Matisse’s Parsiphal, Jim Dine’s Picture of Dorian Gray, and many more European and American works on paper from a variety of eras.

The DIA’s Facebook page says that the exhibition is free with museum admission. If you live in the area or are visiting family or friends over the holiday season, be sure to check it out.
