Master Drawings New York (MDNY) was established in 2006 as the New York counterpart to Master Drawings London (now part of London Art Week) and began as an art event dedicated to Old Master drawings on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Scheduled for the last week of January, the event coincides with the major Old Master auctions and the Winter Antiques Fair. Collectors, scholars, and dealers travel to New York from around the world to view the artwork and participate in events around the city.
Since its inception, MDNY has become one of the top specialist art events in the U.S. and has grown to include paintings and sculptures, spanning all periods. In 2021, eighteen dealers from the US and Europe will exhibit online at www.masterdrawingsnewyork.com/and in galleries along Madison Avenue, from East 63rd Street up to East 86th Street.
