About Master Drawings
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 fair dedicated to Old Master drawings on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Scheduled for the last week of January, the fair 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 fine art fairs in the US and has grown to include paintings and sculpture, spanning all periods. Each year, a group of roughly 30 dealers from the US and abroad exhibit in galleries along Madison Avenue, from East 63rd Street up to East 86th Street.
