Training the Eye explores the Walters' rich collection of works on paper through the lens of 19th-century artistic training and technique. Working in a range of mediums from watercolor to graphite to ink, artists honed their skills through intensive practice, seeking to become masters of their art. This intimate exhibition brings together 17 richly detailed and evocative portraits, still-life studies, and figure drawings—many of which are on view at the Walters for the very first time. This exhibition is generously supported by the Women's Committee.
