A collection of 23 works on paper are featured in the exhibition "American Drawings and Watercolors: Gifts of Leonard L. Milberg, Class of 1953," on view at the Princeton University Art Museum through July 21.

Beginning in the early 1980s, Milberg initiated a series of gifts of American works on paper to the Graphic Arts Division of Rare Books and Special Collections at Firestone Library, and during the last two decades he has been a generous donor to the Princeton University Art Museum.

The exhibition, which includes works lent by Firestone Library, accompanies the course Art 211, "Major Figures in American Art," taught in spring 2002 by Professor Wilmerding the Christopher Binyon Sarofim '86 Professor in American Art. Additional works given by Leonard L. Milberg are on view in the exhibition "Heroic Pastorals: Images of the American Landscape," in the Milberg Gallery, Firestone Library, through Oct. 6.
