Art on Paper Society


Whether you are an art lover or just art curious, an aspiring artist or a seasoned collector, you are invited to join the Speed in celebrating the creative power and visual appeal of prints, drawings, and photographs. From the virtuosity of a Dürer engraving to the elegance of a Matisse drawing, from the playfulness of a Daumier caricature to the monumentality of an O’Sullivan photograph—discover what inspires you.

The Art on Paper Society offers its members the opportunity to engage with the curator, participate in exclusive behind-the-scenes events, and cultivate a richer knowledge and appreciation of works on paper.
