Tuesday 14 May 2013 A celebration of drawing

Fine Lines at the Brooklyn Museum is a celebration of drawing in charcoal, graphite, crayon, pastel and pen and ink. I visited last week, catching this exhibition before it closes on May 26.

There were surprises among the work – such as the piece by The Prophet author Kahlil Gibran and Georgia O’Keefe who I don’t associate with drawing – alongside work by artists such as Edward Hopper, Winslow Homer, Benjamin West - and you’d immediately recognize the drawings by Gaston Lachaise and Isamu Noguchi since they seem to be inspirations for their later sculptures. Other gems are by John Singer Sargent, Stuart Davis, William Merritt Chase’s Shinnecock Hills, Max Weber, Marsden Hartley, Blanche Lavell. An added bonus of the exhibition of work by more than 80 artists are the actual sketchbooks of six of them which may be studied – and enjoyed – in their display cases.
