Item description for The Drawing Book: A Survey of Drawing : The Primary Means of Expression by Tania Kovats...

The works in The Drawing Book, by artists, architects, sculptors, scientists, filmmakers and thinkers of all descriptions, attest to the versatility and immediacy of drawing. From first thoughts to finely wrought, elaborate artworks, from the lightest sketch in pencil to bold, gallery-wall installations, the medium is shown as an essential vehicle for creativity. The recent prominence of artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Eva Hesse, Chris Ofili, Rachel Whiteread, Ellen Gallagher, and a host of others who use drawing as a final means of expression, is addressed in both the works shown and essays by curators Kate Macfarlane and Katharine Stout, and art historian Charles Darwent. The Drawing Book takes us on a journey through five themes -- measurement, nature, the city, dreams, and the body. Each is richly illustrated with a diverse range of images, from the old masters -- Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Drer -- through great Modernist pieces by Rodin, Picasso, Matisse, and on to the contemporary artists who are reviving drawing today. The Drawing Book provides a new and unique approach to an age old medium.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Drawing Book: A Survey of Drawing : The Primary Means of Expression?

One For the Drawing Room  Aug 16, 2007
Great selection and themes. Printing and layout are excellent. Significant pull quotes draw you in. The broad range of contributions is unusual in today's world of art stars and the system that supports it. An attractive and substantive addition to a library.
 
sculptor  Jul 21, 2006
A great read and welll bound solid reference book. Tempted to give 5 stars but a personal quirk is that I was looking for more images less text, so rating is more about me than the book.
 
An outstanding gathering of works by artists, architects, sculptors, filmmakers and more   May 22, 2006
The weighty set of examples packed into THE DRAWING BOOK: A SURVEY OF DRAWING: THE PRIMARY MEANS OF EXPRESSION should deter no real artist: it provides an outstanding gathering of works by artists, architects, sculptors, filmmakers and more to demonstrate the versatility of drawing. Add essays by curators Kate Macfarlene and Katharine Stout and art writers Charles Darwent and you have an in-depth survey through five artistic themes - measurement, nature, the city, dreams, and the body. It's the color plates which stand out here, as silent testimony to the range of expression drawing can bring to each theme and thought.
