René Magritte: "The Sixteenth of September"

Marks of Genius: 100 Extraordinary Drawings from the Minneapolis Institute of Art 

When: March 19-June 19 2016

STARTING SATURDAY, MARCH 19

MARKS OF GENIUS

What do the voluptuous portraiture of François Boucher, the stippled pop art of Roy Lichtenstein, the tragic social commentary of Käthe Kollwitz, and the colorful modernism of Henri Matisse have in common? Each artist used drawing as a way to study, iterate, or imagine a finished work of art. Over the last hundred years, the Minneapolis Institute of Art has amassed an extensive collection of works on paper, some of which can be seen through June 19 at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Marks of Genius: 100 Extraordinary Drawings from the Minneapolis Institute of Art. March 19 will be a busy day for the museum—also opening are American Impressionist: Childe Hassam and the Isles of Shoals, ticketed with Marks of Genius, and Island Boy: Original Illustrations for Barbara Cooney's Classic Children's Book. —Tina Haver Currin

NORTH CAROLINA MUSEUM OF ART, RALEIGH 10 a.m.–5 p.m., free–$12, www.ncartmuseum.org
