Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now: from the British Museum

The raw expression and design elements revealed in this masterful exhibition,  Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now: from the British Museum, reminds me of why I chose drawing and printmaking as my area of concentration for my BFA. I look forward to visiting this exhibit multiple times over the coming months.

Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now: from the British Museum makes its international debut at the New Mexico Museum of Art, the first, and one of only two United States venues to host the exhibition. With works from a list that reads like a “who’s who" of international artists through the centuries, the exhibition offers a rare opportunity to better understand the thinking behind an artist’s drawing, comparing side by side drawings from master draftsmen across five centuries. The featured artists include Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Albrecht Dürer, Piet Mondrian, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Franz Kline and Rachel Whiteread.
