Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now: from the British Museum makes its international debut at the New Mexico Museum of Art, the first, and one of only two United States venues to host the exhibition. With works from a list that reads like a “who's who" of international artists through the centuries, the exhibition offers a rare opportunity to better understand the thinking behind an artist's drawing, comparing side by side drawings from master draftsmen across five centuries. The featured artists include Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Albrecht Dürer, Piet Mondrian, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Franz Kline and Rachel Whiteread.

Examining the enormous variety of methods used as a means of recording and provoking thought from the fifteenth century to today, Lines of Thought explores the history of drawing as a thinking medium, providing insight into the minds of some of the world's greatest artists. A treasure of small wonders, this exhibit features powerful designs and suggestive sketches by Renaissance masters and artists through the ages. visit our website
