Drawing the Line: Michelangelo to Asawa

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Through rarely seen works and masterpieces by beloved artists over five centuries, this exhibition of drawings explores the expressive possibilities of the outline. Drawn from our works on paper collection, the selection ranges from minimal line drawings by Michelangelo and Andy Warhol to fluid figure studies by Pablo Picasso and Ruth Asawa. One of our most treasured works, Paul Gauguin's large-scale portrait L'Arl├ęsienne (Madame Ginoux) (1888) is on display for the first time in more than a decade.

This exhibition is designed in conversation with our special exhibition Botticelli Drawings, which highlights the famed Renaissance artist's command of the line.
