Also part of the drawings show are pieces by artists from present-day Germany, Switzerland and Austria. A 17th-century landscape by Isaak Major, in pen and blue ink, is shown above.
One of the highlights of the Met show will be this iconic self-portrait by Albrecht Dürer from 1493, part of a series of studies that the artist did of himself, his hand and his pillow.

The images in the Aperture show were collected by rescue and other official personnel and displayed in schools and other local centers in Japan, serving as an impromptu memorial.
