Selected Works on Paper from the Renaissance to Modernism Art Gallery of Ontario
This beautiful book is the first to trace the history and reveal the highlights of the Art Gallery of Ontario`s inspiring collection of drawings and watercolours. The AGO founded its prints and drawings department in 1976, and its collection has become one of the fastest growing in North America.
Each of the 100 works in this unconventional selection is accompanied by an insightful commentary by a distinguished expert, providing a fascinating chronicle of five centuries of drawing.
In recent years, the collection has taken a leap forward in scope and depth. Drawing Attention showcases the Gallery`s finest European and North American drawings, including works by such major artists as Boucher, Turner, Gauguin, Picasso and Pollock, several of which are published here for the first time. Demonstrating the AGO`s committment to acquisition and preservation at the highest level, this book celebrates a dazzling collection.
