Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863) visited Morocco from January through June of 1832. He was part of the diplomatic mission of Charles-Henri-Edgar, Comte de Mornay. He made drawings and annotations in seven sketchbooks during the trip. The Frick Art Reference Library has facsimiles of two of the sketchbooks.
In June of 2016, the Brooklyn Museum purchased the correspondence of Jane Schenck Malbone and Ralph Malbone at a Swann Gallery auction. This exciting acquisition enriches the Library’s holdings of primary source and published documentation on the Schenck family, who were prominent Dutch farmers in Brooklyn and one of the first families to settle the area around 1650.
