Drawing is at the very forefront of contemporary art practice. The radical shift in the treatment and development of drawing since the 1960s has resulted in a renewed status and relevance for it within current practice, with some of the most exciting artistic ideas of the last fifty years indebted to its use. This brand new study into contemporary drawing structures itself around three broad subjects: abstraction and drawing, looking at the way drawing really came into its own at a time when notions of art and the employment of media were radically challenged; drawing as narrative, borrowing and developing ideas on illustration and cartoon art, and investigating the use of drawing with the moving image; and drawing as engagement, with its role in offering a visual description of our environment, as well as the notion of its own physical presence, particularly in relationship to landscape. Including work by artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, Agnes Martin, Richard Serra, Philip Guston, Claes Oldenburg, Len Lye, Gordon Matta-Clarke and Richard Long, the book explores how practitioners have addressed and redefined notions of medium specificity in relation to drawing, and how it has been particularly significant for artists pursuing an interdisciplinary practice. Katharine Stout contextualises the medium within history and with the current treatment of drawing by theoreticians, institutions, the art market, and education systems, concluding that drawing is a popular, diverse and ever evolving medium.

This is a stunningly illustrated look at some of Leonardo's finest drawings - from iconic images to simple sketches. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer whose genius the world may never know the likes of again. As a painter, Leonardo's works occupy unique positions in the world of art, but it is his drawings - sometimes simple sketches, executed with a quick but confident hand, or finished works destined to leave an everlasting mark on the world of art - that have captured the imagination of generations and had such a profound impact on history. This magnificently illustrated volume brings together some of the finest examples of Leonardo's drawings - from the iconic Vitruvian Man and his superbly detailed anatomical drawings to quick but emotive portraits and his technical sketches - and gives an unrivalled and fascinating insight into his exquisite draftsmanship.

Twice Drawn brings together an eclectic range of drawings from the last half-century to explore the influence and vigor of this pervasive yet commonly overlooked practice. Providing a contextual depth often lost in large group surveys, this book begins with beautiful reproductions of two stand-out drawings each from over 50 artists. The book then mixes those drawings with hundreds more works that are thematically arranged by traditional genres and less conventional principles, offering alternative ways to examine relationships among style, contemporaneity, and chronology. Artists include mid-century stalwarts like Philip Guston, and Ellsworth Kelly, established draftsmen such as Brice Marden, and Lee Bontecou, and a younger generation of artists like Dawn Clements and Chris Ofili. In addition, the book focuses on the work of four artists: Lee Lozano, Ed Ruscha, Jim Shaw, and Susan Turcot.

  • German drawings in America and the Wolfgang Ratjen collection / Andrew Robison
  • Wolfgang Ratjen and European collecting of German drawings / Hinrich Sieveking
  • Catalogue.
In late 2007 the National Gallery of Art acquired one of the finest private European holdings of Old-Master drawings -- the Wolfgang Ratjen Collection. This unique survey includes drawings by many of the most important artists from the German-speaking areas of Europe, including Switzerland and Austria. Passionately assembled by Wolfgang Ratjen (1943-1997) over three decades, the drawings presented in this beautiful scholarly catalogue include rare, evocative, and influential examples by Hans von Aachen, Johann Rottenhammer, and Adam Elsheimer; studies for soaring religious ceilings by some of the greatest Bavarian artists, including Cosmas Damian Asam, Matth us G nther, and Franz Anton Maulbertsch; delightful Augsburg designs for rococo prints by Johann Wolfgang Baumgartner, Johann Esaias Nilson, and Gottfried Eichler; landscape watercolors by Johann Georg von Dillis and Caspar David Friedrich; architectural watercolors by Balthasar Neumann, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, and Rudolf von Alt; and an exciting group of realist drawings by Hans Thoma, Otto Greiner, and Adolph von Menzel. The addition of the collection to the Gallery's already strong holdings creates the finest survey of German drawings in a museum outside Europe. This book will accompany an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. from May 16 through November 28, 2010.

Neo Rauch traverses many boundaries in his work: surrealist and realist; comic and serious; dreamlike and journalistic. Rather than condensing his work into one genre or framework, Rauch combines iconographic and visual elements from diverse worlds: comic strips, advertising, film, architecture, design, German culture, art history and history, in general. This specially designed volume presents Rauch's drawings, which reflect the archetypal and mythical nature of his work. An interview with the artist and an introductory essay by Wolfgang Buscher provide depth and background to these selected works that hail from every period of Rauch's career.

Emma Dexter's introductory text offers a critical account of the recent evolution and role of drawing in the art world, and introduces some of the trends, methods and artists included in the book. In the following and largest section of the book (over 300 pages and approximately 500 illustrations), the 100 or more artists are presented in an A to Z order. Some artists are presented on 2 pages, some on 4 pages. About 5 selections of work are reproduced for each artist, along a text written by an author who is a specialist on the artist's work. The 500-word texts are brief surveys of the artist's career to date, and aim at introducing the methods and subject matter at issue in their recent works. A selected list of exhibitions and bibliography also complements the reproductions and text on each artist.
