A Cabinet of Drawings September 2, 2008 - January 4, 2009
This exhibition will explore the Ransom Center's extensive holdings of drawings created by internationally recognized artists, architects, designers, scientists, and literary greats. Selections will highlight the medium's inherent strength as a multifaceted form of visual communication. From intimate expressions of the artist's innermost thoughts to highly refined master works, the exhibition will provide visitors with a broad appreciation of this fundamental yet highly versatile and expressive art form.
The exhibition, or "cabinet," will be presented as a series of mini-exhibitions contextually grouped by theme and artistic intent to include preliminary drawings, designs, book illustration, illustrated letters, landscapes, and portraiture.
