The Oklahoma City Musuem of Art debuts the international tour of Master Strokes: Dutch and Flemish Drawings from the Golden Age.

Straight from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, these 90 drawings span the 16th to 20th centuries. Artistic heavy-hitters like Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt van Rijn and Anthony van Dyck are featured, as well as virtual unknowns from the past.

The exhibition groups the art thematically and chronologically to allow viewers to compare the styles and practices of artists from the lower and upper Netherlands over five centuries. The drawings include designs for stained glass, portraits, landscapes and botanical studies in a variety of media, including watercolors and pastels.

Certain pieces are only sketches, while others are completed drawings or working studies.

The exhibition runs Oct. 28-Jan 21, and a member’s preview takes place Oct. 27. For more information, visit
