Works on Paper

The works on paper collection at the Carlos Museum contains over 4,000 prints, drawings, and photographs. The collection was begun in 1967 by the Art History Department, which continues to play an active role in the selection and donation of works to the Museum. At the same time, the Carlos has benefited from numerous donations from private collectors, many of them Emory alumni from across the United States, as well as from present and former Emory faculty and, finally, diverse friends of the Museum based in Atlanta and elsewhere. These donations - encompassing Renaissance and Baroque engravings and etchings, French and Italian drawings, nineteenth- and twentieth-century photography, American Regionalist prints, contemporary works, and still other areas-have enriched all the Museum's collections immeasurably.

Over 1,000 high resolution images of works of art in the Carlos Museum's collections are available online.
