Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now: from the British Museum
On display through Sep 17, 2017 at the New Mexico Museum of Art
Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now examines the many ways artists have used drawing as a means of recording and provoking thought from the fifteenth century to today.
The internationally recognized line-up of artists featured in the exhibition is a ‘who’s who’ of artists through the centuries. The exhibition includes work by artists as diverse as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Albrecht Dürer, Piet Mondrian, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Franz Kline and Rachel Whiteread.
Combining work from master artists of the past with artists working today, clearly demonstrates the common thread of drawing as the basis for creation. Drawing is one of the most effective mediums for the immediate expression and representation of an artist’s ideas. Drawing often serves as the starting point for other creative arts including painting, sculpture, even basic engineering design and architecture. The exhibition will help visitors to explore the range inherent in the medium of drawing and may even inspire them to draw as well.
