The Art of Drawing - Susan Owens

ISBN: 9781851777587
Publication Date: 2013-10-29
This beautiful book reveals works from the Victoria and Albert Museum's rich collection of drawings ranging from the early 17th century right up to the present day. Reproducing, often for the first time, works by foremost British artists, this book offers fresh insights into the wide range of ways in which these artists have used drawing to think on paper, build up ideas, and make finished exhibition pieces. Including examples from the greatest masters--William Blake, Thomas Rowlandson, John Constable, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, Paul Nash, Lucian Freud, David Hockney, John Piper, Grayson Perry, and others--author Susan Owens discusses the art and craft of drawing, materials, and techniques, and why artists chose them.
