CURATED LIBRARIES

Modern and Contemporary Drawing

Modern and Contemporary Drawing

Our Modern and Contemporary Drawing Curated Library features a hand-picked selection of essentials for lovers and scholars of drawing. In MoMA's book On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century, Wassily Kandinsky is quoted: "From these two graphic entities — point and line — derive the entire resources of a whole realm of art, graphics. The point is now able to increase its size ad infinitum and becomes the spot. Its subsequent and ultimate potential is that of changing its configuration, whereby it passes from the purely mathematical form of a bigger or smaller circle to forms of infinite flexibility and diversity, far removed from the diagrammatic. The fate of line is more complex and requires a special description. The transference of line to a free environment produces a number of extremely important results...Its practical meaning becomes abstract. As a result, the line discloses an inner sound of artistic significance. A fundamental turning point is attained. Its fruit is the birth of the language of art. Line experiences many fates. Each creates a particular, specific world, from schematic limitation to unlimited expressivity. These worlds liberate line more and more from the instrument, leading to complete freedom of expression." Find more inspiration in the 70 plus titles collected here.
