Among the fine arts, drawing is arguably the most direct connection to the artist’s thought and work processes – and thus to the miracle of artistic creativity. This exhibition presents drawings from the Museum’s collection spanning a broad range of periods and places and includes works by Avigdor Arikha, Eugène Delacroix, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Aviva Uri, and Egon Schiele. Works are displayed according to such themes as collage, preparatory drawings, and the boundaries of drawing. However, they are neither classified nor interpreted – the viewer is invited to experience them without explanatory intervention and to reflect on the questions they raise. Drawing Questions is curated by Meira Perry-Lehmann, Michael Bromberg Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings.
