Charles Dickens at 200

Charles Dickens fans should not miss the Morgan Library and Museum’s exciting bicentennial celebration of the author’s birth. With North America’s greatest permanent collection of Dickens manuscripts, books, letters and documents, the Morgan Library in midtown Manhattan is the perfect venue for this extraordinary special exhibition of Dickensiana drawn from international collections. The show runs until February 12, 2012.

If you plan to visit the Morgan, be sure to pencil in the time for three other concurrent shows at the venerable (and frequently overlooked) institution. This Fall the Morgan also has the first-ever showing of David, Delacroix, and Revolutionary France: Drawings from the Louvre. Along with exquisite drawings from the special exhibition Ingres at the Morgan and the gorgeous show Treasures of Islamic Manuscript Painting.
