The Cleveland Museum of Art announces new acquisitions
CLEVELAND, March 29, 2021: Recent acquisitions by the
Cleveland Museum of Art include Aurelio Lombardo’s Dido,
an exquisitely carved early 16th-century marble relief
sculpture; a drawing by Giulio Romano directly related to one of
the artist’s most important frescoed ceilings in Italy; Gustave
Caillebotte’s Study of a Man with Hands in His Pockets, a
rare drawing by the Impressionist master that greatly enhances
the museum’s collection of 19th-century French art.
Additional recent acquisitions continue to expand the CMA’s
representation of works by African American artists and other
artists of color, including four screenprints by Barbara Jones-Hogu,
Wadsworth Jarrell, and Amy Sherald, and four photographs by
D’Angelo Lovell Williams. Zilia Sánchez’s Troyanas (de la
serie Módulos Infinitos) [Trojans (of the Infinite Module
series)], an impressively scaled modular painting, adds to
the museum’s contemporary holdings of Latin American art.
